FIDLab 2024

New films from Dan Sallitt and Katsuya Tomita are among the projects selected for FIDLab, the co-production market of France’s FIDMarseille (June 27-28).

US filmmaker Sallitt, who a 2021 Gotham for his Fourteen screenplay, will bring Late Autumn about a 67-year-old who decides to pursue medical school after mysteriously recovering from cancer. 

Tomita’s project The Langfang Republic follows two friends, one a pop singer and the other a mafiosa, whose lives are shaken up by drastic events.

Other projects include Riar Rizaldi’s documentary South Sea exploring the death of ten Indonesians in 2022 who were swept by tidal waves while performing rituals on the Payangan beach.

The 16th edition of the showcase gives out 10 in-kind grants, awarded by the jury made up of Romanian producer Ada Solomon, Dennis Ruh and Visions du Reel’s Madeline Robert.
