New Zealand feature documentary Crossing Rachmaninoff plays in competition in the 29th Festival International des Programmes Audiovisuels (FIPA) in France this week.
FIPA screens around 130 films and programmes from a range of genres in both competition and out-of-competition. Crossing Rachmaninoff will screen in competition in the Performing Arts section.
“FIPA has a strong tradition of selecting high quality personal profile and arts-based documentaries, so I’m thrilled they selected Crossing Rachmaninoff for competition,” director/producer Rebecca Tansley said.
Crossing Rachmaninoff was shot in New Zealand and Italy by Simon Raby. Sound and music were recorded by Mike Westgate with a 5.1 audio mix thanks to Park Road Post. The film was edited by Thomas Gleeson. Following selection by the NZIFF, Crossing Rachmaninoff received a NZFC finishing grant.
The film has its NZ release from 25 February through Rialto Distribution.
The Festival International des Programmes Audiovisuels (FIPA) runs 19 – 24 January in Biarritz, France.
