Frederic Bissiere is a man with a mission - to put Fez on the map, film-wise. He chatted recently with The View from Fez team.
Frederic has a background in sustainable development with the World Bank. His cameraman, Jacques, is a film-maker and teacher of film. Together they came to Fez some eight months ago and set up the TV channel, 100% Fez. They make documentaries about Fez which they screen on the internet at http://www.centpourcentfes.com/en/home, on Youtube and on Apple TV.
An example of their work is the film they made about the recent visit of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to the Fez medina (see it on The View from Fez here). So far, most of their work is in French, but English will be added soon. 100% Fez works with public institutions such as the CRT (tourism authority) and the Investment Bureau, as well as private companies and the University of Fez. The idea is to provide communication and serve as a link for the community, particularly the youth and women.
