Festival International du Documentaire Etudiant

International Student Documentary Film Festival.


FIDÉ is a French documentary festival that helps promoting international young talents and creations. It takes place in April, at Saint-Ouen, next to Paris, France.

Different kinds of documentary or docu-oriented works may be presented : films, audio or multimedia creations. They must have been created while attending school, college, highschool or any related workshop.

FIDÉ is also a place for sharing ideas, creativity and professional exchanges.


Fidé is non-competitive but different «awards» are offered every year, like introductions to producers or experimented directors.


There is no restriction of directing date, subject, original support, director’s nationality or production’s country. One director can submit more than one documentary.

The works allowed in the Festival must answer to all following conditions:

  • Be a documentary or a «documentary-oriented» film, audio documentary, or animated film. Corporate or institutional films, reports, magazine topics or media coverages won't be accepted. The works of pure fiction are not admitted;
  • Be a work of creation in which the point of view and treatment issues are raised as much as the questions regarding the subject. Corporate or institutional films, reports, investigation films, magazine topics or promotional films are not accepted;
  • Be a work that has been completed during the time of the director’s studies (university, college, high school, workshops);
  • Exceptionally this year the playing time is limited to 60 minutes maximum.
  • Do not be a work already sent to the previous editions of the Festival.
