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 October 2022, vote for the 5 films you would like to see in the Audience Choice section which is created by the audience of the Festival.

The themes of parallel sections of FIFF23 will be announced over the coming months, from October to February.

FIFF 2021: Music!
FIFF goes where practically no other film festival has gone before: in October 2020, the public had the opportunity to vote for the five music-themed films they wanted to see in FIFF’s brand new and pioneering Genre cinema: Audience Choice section. The five films which gathered the most votes will be on the silver screen in Fribourg in July 2021.
