Sections 2022

The war room in Dr. Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick, 1964

Aside from its international competitions, FIFF offers each year six or seven sections which celebrate cinema from all around the world. Each section follows guidelines used each year such as Genre Cinema, New Territory or Sur la carte de... . In 2021, a new section appeared: a section created by the audience of the Festival.

The themes of parallel sections of FIFF22 will be announced over the coming months, from October to February.

GENRE CINEMAThe classic genre interpreted by different cultures

FIFF 2022: post-apocalyptic films
In 2022, the theme of the Genre Cinema section will be post-apocalyptic films, in which the last men and women standing roam a deserted Earth.

MAKE IT FAMILY TIME - The meeting for movie-loving families

In the past, FIFFamily was the name given to a handful of selected films shown during the Festival. But the public wanted to see more; FIFF heeded their call. FIFFamily has become a stand-alone section geared to audiences of all ages since 2020. Its programme promises to be a real treat for movie-loving families.
