We are thrilled to be able to extend the festival through partnerships with La Fabrique culturelle, Tënk, and ICI TOU.TV. Throughout the year, these platforms will present a selection of documentaries from our previous editions.

Tënk

Vol spécial by Fernand Melgar (RIDM 2011) is now available on Tënk.ca until July 2.

The filmmaker immersed himself for nine months in the administrative detention center of Frambois in Geneva, one of the 28 expulsion centres for undocumented migrants in Switzerland. In Frambois, there are rejected asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. Some of them have been in Switzerland for years, have started a family there and are working–until the day when the cantonal immigration services arbitrarily decide to throw them in prison to guarantee their departure. None of the detainees are willing to leave Switzerland voluntarily. Then, a long administrative relentlessness begins with the aim of forcing them to leave.
