In addition to in-theater Q&As, every afternoon from Wednesday to Saturday, FIDMarseille organizes an hour and a half of discussions to reflect on the contemporary situation of independent cinema, take a step back from the preconceptions of the 35th edition of the festival and explore the questions it raises.

The forums will be broadcast on Radio Grenouille during the week of the festival, as well as a series of ‘Cinémoi’, brief interviews with filmmakers.
