Journey time to Tahiti is just 5 hours. Air Tahiti Nui’s partnerships include American Airlines, Delta, Air France, Air New Zealand, Qantas and the SNCF rail system in France.

  • FIFO is not just a festival. It’s a strong shout coming from the huge Pacific proclaiming that Oceania does exist. On the field of documentary it’s a major rendez-vous awaited by Film, TV professionals & decision makers of the French and English speaking islands of the region, as well as anyone interested in the 7th continent. It takes place in Tahiti in February. FIFO hosts the Oceanian Television Dialogue, a documentary film market, the Oceanian Short Film Night, a pitch dating, digital encounters, Pacific festivals meeting, and free workshops for amateurs. Directors give their insights on their films during the « Inside the doc » sessions with the public.
    FIFO receives more than a hundred films each year. Among which thirty are selected.
    The competition films compete for 1 Main Prize and 3 Special Jury prizes. All the documentaries (competition and off-competition) are in the running for the Public Prize. Each prize is cash awarded.

    From its first edition in 2004, FIFO has succeeded at presenting a multiplicity of viewpoints on islands of Oceania sometimes very distant from each other.
    Far from simply showing exceptional landscapes and peculiar daily lives, the Festival soon turned out to be very concerned about preserving the memory of practices, rituals and beliefs, about perpetuating customs. It became the spokesperson for conflicts, malaises, worries and hardships of the South Pacific Islands.
    Word has increasingly relied on Image to tell history, to express anger or hope, show unsuspected realities or paint exceptional portraits. And as the world changes, new issues raised.

    Documentary films today, whether they come from Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu or Easter Island, ask real questions about society : how can tradition and modernity fuse in harmony? Does the recognition of identity necessarily call for the indictment of the colonialist? How do we move beyond the cultural clash, and appropriate it?
    How to reconcile one’s mixed origins? What can be done for the sustainable development of the islands without damaging the environment? How do we choose to live? How do we change our societies?
    The problems are set out, and fortunately, some answers are given, at FIFO.
