Today sees the opening of the 32nd FIDMarseille, in which over 110 films hailing from 39 countries will be presented up until 25 July, including 43 world premieres and four international premieres all within competitive line-ups. This year, Marseilles’ International Film Festival will award an honorary Grand Prize and dedicate a retrospective to Thailand’s Apichatpong Weerasethakul (who won Cannes’ Jury Prize on Saturday by way of Memoria [+leggi anche:

Stealing particular focus among the 15 titles (of which 13 in world premieres) participating in the international competition (to be evaluated by a jury presided over by Filipino director Lav Diaz) is Let’s Say Revolution by French filmmakers Elisabeth Perceval and Nicolas Klotz, Jojo by their compatriot Antoni Collot, the Austrian production Beatrix [+leggi anche:

Worth a mention among the non-European feature films jostling alongside them is The Invisible Mountain by US director Ben Russell, and a selection of Russian, Mexican, Argentine and Japanese films.
On the matter of the French competition (whose jury will be led by Polish director Lech Kowalski), 11 world premieres are on the agenda, including the feature films I‘m A Heroin of The Peripheral by Muriel Montini, The Cure by Clément Schneider and Simon Rembado, First Kingdom by Ioanis Nuguet, Edouard and Charles by Pascale Bodet, The Perpetual Leek by Zoé Chantre and Water Lily Split by Grégoire Perrier. Of note among the medium-length films is Yellow Saturday by Antonin Peretjatko.
Three further competitive sections are in the offing at FIDMarseille: one for first films (screening The Hill by French director Julien Chauzit and The Dust of Modern Life by Germany’s Franziska von Stenglin, among other works), another christened Flash and dedicated to short films, and a third under the aegis of the French National Association of Innovative Cinema (GNCR – Groupement National des Cinémas de Recherche) which notably features A Sense of Justice by France’s Swen de Pauw and two titles discovered in Berlin (From Where They Stood [+leggi anche:

It’s also well worth highlighting the Others Gems line-up, which boasts the German production Her Name Was Europa by Anja Dornieden and Juan David Gonzales Monroy, A Fake Novel About The Life of Arthur Rimbaud by France’s Florence Pazzottu, and the French-Russian title Iliazd by Stanislav Dorochenkov, to name just three, not to mention the selection of seven films set to be showcased within the framework of Doc Alliance, a partnership uniting the likes of seven European festivals (FIDMarseille, Denmark’s CPH:DOX, Portugal’s Doclisboa, Germany’s DOK Leipzig, the Czech Republic’s Ji.hlava, Poland’s Docs Against Gravity and Switzerland’s Visions du Réel).
