The festival was initially devoted to documentaries but has since expanded to include fictional and art films. Since 2015 the official selection has included fictional films alongside documentaries.

The programme is arranged around three competitions, one International, one French and one for debut films. Thirty five feature and medium length films enter the competition. The screenings are open to professionals and the public at cinemas, theatres, art galleries and outdoor amphitheatres in Marseille city. The festival also offers retrospectives to filmmakers and other sessions to discover / rediscover great classics and cinematic masterpieces.

The festival typically receives around 500 professionals and 20,000 visitors. The festival is part of the ‘Doc Alliance’ – a creative partnership between seven key European documentary film festivals.
