The General Assembly of the Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinemas was held at the Maison du FICA, 1, rue Paul Petitclerc in Vesoul, October 28, 2021 in the presence of Mr. Alexandre Garniron, Deputy Mayor of Vesoul in charge of culture and Mr. Gilles Lazar, President of the culture commission of the Regional Council of Bourgogne - Franche - Comté.
The 28th Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinemas will take place from February 1 to 8, 2022
The festival is in mourning: Marc Haaz , its technical director, was killed in a plane crash on July 30, 2021, at the age of 33. He was one of the pillars of the festival. The whole team got together to divide up the multiple tasks which he always accomplished naturally, with a smile.
Marc Haaz was not only the technical director of FICA, he was also an actor, director, producer, distributor. He was destined for a brilliant career in the world of cinema. It was a solar being struck down, in full professional rise, by fate.
Tribute will be paid to him during the opening ceremony on February 1st 2022.
It was decided to create a Marc Haaz Jury, made up of young directors, awarding a Marc Haaz prize, to a young director.
