Vesoul Asian Film Festival

The Festival international des cinémas d'Asie (FICA) de Vesoul was founded in 1995. With almost 30,000 admissions for 90 films per edition, it is the largest and oldest Asian film festival in the world, and the only one to present films from the entire Asian continent, from the Near to the Far East.

Festival presentation

The Festival des cinémas d'Asie de Vesoul is now the most important festival about Asia in Europe. For 30 years now, the FICA has been helping to promote and recognize cinematographies that are still too little known. Its 30,000 spectators attest to the fact that Asian auteur cinema is just as interesting as Asia itself, and that's what links Inalco to FICA.

The Prix Inalco screening is now a highlight of Inalco's cultural programming, and a discovery for our students, from an Iranian film to an Indian or an Indonesian...

The four-member Inalco jury - teaching staff, students and administrative staff - is lucky enough to live at the Vésulien rhythm for a week each year. Inalco students, staff and teachers also have the opportunity to enjoy the festival, thanks to the accreditation offered to them.

L'Inalco à Vesoul

Since 2004, the start of our partnership with FICA, the Inalco jury has rewarded cinema from Iran, Indonesia, Korea, India, China, the Philippines, Israel and Kurdistan...with the Prix Inalco (1,500 euros) and the Coup de cœur Inalco (symbolic). Our 4-member jury judges the ten films in the fiction competition. The winning film is then screened in the Inalco auditorium.
