On Vous Ment Mockumentary Film festival – second edition, will take place from June 2d to 4th 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.
