On Vous Ment Mockumentary Film festival - 5th edition, will take place from May 7 to 10 in Lyon, France.

This one of a kind event is dedicated to mockumentary genre films, that is to say fiction films that follow the conventions of documentary. This festival claims to be a place of reflexion about the influence and the manipulation of images.

Campaigning for artistic freedom to expand at its best, our festival is open to professional productions as well as self-produced films.
During a weekend of celebrating the mockumentary genre, we want deconstruction, punk amusement and childish gullibility to coexist.

The submitted films will be seen and put to the vote by a prestigious jury – no pressure, cool it ! - and the winners will be awarded with prizes.

- Colin McKenzie Price - Best Feature Film
- Best Short Film
- Audience award
- Pinocchio prize of the best performance

- Sending deadline : 28 February, 2023
- Register online at onvousment.fr/en/

- Compulsory : Mockumentary genre, films of fiction displaying the content and shape features of documentary films.
Mockumentary, Fake documentary and « found footage » are accepted into our selection but docudramas (documentaries that partly contain fiction facts) are not.

    Excellent organization, even though I couldn't attend in person, the effort and dedication towards the screening and promotion of the film were perfect. It is a good feeling to see people who invest in this genre, also works hard to organize this lovely festival. Merci!
