FIDMarseille Carte Blanche: A Weekend with Programmer Jean-Pierre Rehm

November 23–24, 2013

Special thanks to the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York for their support of this series

FIDMarseille, which takes place in early July in Southern France, is one of the world’s most adventurous film festivals. Under the artistic direction of Jean-Pierre Rehm, it is a showcase for a myriad of groundbreaking documentaries. As recently described in Sight and Sound, “What’s interesting about FIDMarseille is that it doesn’t just do the whole where-fact-and-fiction-collide thing. The program has one of the most expansive perspectives of all the progressive documentary festivals, with artist’s film and video, documentary and fiction film all commingling.” Jean Pierre-Rehm will be present for all screenings, which include several New York premieres, and a selection of films from recent editions.
