To complement the patron’s award, we also wished to value the recognition of the public and encourage young directors with a concrete financial aid of 1000 euros, thanks to the new Audience Award. The winner will be elected by votes. The audience will be invited to give a note to each film after the screenings. With a value of 1000 euros, this award represents, for the winner, besides the valorisation of his film, the contribution of a financial incentive intended for the writing of his next cinematographic project.
Le Fidé remains a non-competitive festival, so that each film can be appreciated in its singularity. But as a springboard for professional life, since 2014, the Festival invites producers and other film professionals to sponsor a director of the selection.
A dialogue between the patron and the choosen filmmaker starts, and may lead to future collaborations (both on short and long term) and various support : reading new projects, accompaniments, residence of realization , screening of his/her film, financial aid, presentation to other professionals, etc … A special session at the end of the festival, Sunday 14th May at 9:00pm, will be dedicated to patrons who will present their choice to the public.
Une séance spéciale en fin de festival, le dimanche 14 mai à 21h00, sera dédiée aux parrains qui présenteront leur choix au public.

Addoc was born in 1992 from the desire of directors to defend the documentary of creation.
The association is based on a principle of sharing experiences which takes concrete form in workshops implemented by the members. These workshops seek to construct an active vision of documentary cinema, articulating practical questions, aesthetic commitments and political positions.
Addoc is a meeting place open to confirmed or emerging filmmakers, technicians and anyone involved in the creation of documentary films.
The award of the Addoc proposed to a director from the FIDÉ’s selection will be this year :
– the screening of his/her film on the occasion of the monthly programming at cinema Luminor.
