Books and publication

FIDMarseille is expanding its collection of books, launched last year, dedicated to the filmmakers and artists featured in its retrospectives and tributes.
and tributes.

Driven by the spirit and energy of a festival, these lively, collective books welcome multiple forms and styles of writing – critical essays, documents, writings by the filmmakers themselves and, above all, their words.

One, Two, Many, the title of the collection, is first and foremost that of a film by Manon de Boer, presented at FIDMarseille in 2012.

Éditions de l’Oeil, partners of FID and co-publishers of the “One, two, many” collection, will turn themselves into booksellers for the duration of the festival. They will be selling their own books as well as those of other publishers (Capricci, De l’incidence, Warm).

The bookshop will be open every afternoon from June 26th to 30th, in the lobby of the Variétés cinema (June 26th, 28th, 29th) and the Artplexe cinema (June 27th).

Every afternoon, from Wednesday to Saturday, there will be a meeting/signing with a festival guest: Ingrid Caven, Pierre Creton, Jean-Claude Rousseau, Caroline Champetier.
