By focusing on highlighting films from around the world, recognized at prestigious festivals such as the Cannes Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival, the Paris Ile-de-France Film Festival …, the La Foa Film Festival confirms Its desire to offer the Caledonians a reflection of these often unpublished achievements in New Caledonia.
