Tomorrow, 21 January, will see the opening of the second edition of FIPADOC, a festival which successfully decided, as of last year, to focus exclusively on documentaries (after 31 editions dedicated to audiovisual production more generally) and which is now taking things up a notch with no less than 172 titles, all set to be showcased between 21 - 26 January in Biarritz. The programme notably consists of seven competitive sections, four of which offering a Grand Prize.
