‘Day Is Night’

Films by Pierre Creton, Ghassan Salhab and Mariano Llinás are among the line-up of the FIDMarseille international film festival in France (June 25-30). 

The international competition features 13 world premieres and one international premiere, including Night Is Day from Lebanese filmmaker Salhab which chronicles the uprising in Lebanon. 

French filmmaker Creton, who won the SACD prize for best French-language feature at last year’s Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, co-directs with Vincent Barré on 7 Walks With Mark Brown, described as an essay on attention and friendship. 

Also in competition is Kunst De Farbe from Argentina, 1985 screenwriter Llinás exploring themes of music, painting and cinema.

The FIDMarseille line-up includes 50 films in total, 42 of which are world premieres and 21 are directed by women. 

The festival opens with Miguel Gomes’ Grand Tour and closes with Alain Guiraudie’s Misericordia, both fresh from their Cannes premieres.
