The public prize was awarded to “Terre Natale, Retour à Rurutu” directed by Jean-Michel Corillion (France).
This highly successful seventh edition of the FIFO gave the public and participants the opportunity to discover the many faces, cultures, histories and rich stories of the people of the South Pacific. The range of subjects revealed not only the rich diversity and difference within our region but also that which unites us. The festival's partnership with RFO, (France Television group), enabled wide broadcasting of the prize-winning films.
