Book registrations for the FILAF festival 2021


The books that were sent will be examined by the FILAF scientific committee selection.

This committee is composed of: 

- Samuel Hoppe, director of the Volume Library, Paris.

- Matthieu Conquet, producer at radio France Culture.

- Hélène Joubert, curator at Musée du Quai Branly.

- Stéphane Corréard, founder and director of the Parisian fair Galeristes.

- Guillaume Kientz, director of the Hispanic Society Museum, New York.

- Sébastien Gokalp, director of Musée de l’Histoire de l’Immigration, Paris.

Regarding the books in competition, a jury that is renewed annually will deliberate during the festival. The winners will be announced in June 2022: one prize per category, plus the Golden FILAF, Silver FILAF, and the Special Jury Prize. 

As far as possible, the FILAF festival will help to invite the author of each book in competition to present his work to the public during the festival.


An out-of-competition program completes the selection with readings, signatures, and public discussions that the festival is particularly keen to highlight. For the out-of-competition category, there is no conditions for the year of publication.
