A New Caledonian entry has won the top prize at the Pacific Documenary Film Festival, or FIFO, in French Polynesia.

The film ' Nickel - the treasure of the Kanaks' was made by Anne Pitoiset and Laurent Cibien and tells of the way Kanaks in the north managed to take control of the area's main resource, nickel.

The jury's special prize went to the film 'Nuclear Savage' about the nuclear weapons tests of the United States in the Marshall Islands.

The prize of the public was awarded to a local film 'Annanahi, tomorrow' which is about a reggae group in the Marquesas islands.
