The fifth Festival International des Arts du Clip, which was to be held in Aix en Provence in mid-February 2009, has been cancelled.

"After long and painful consideration, we decided to cancel the festival in its expected aspect," he said.

Lefebvre added that is now considering a complete overhaul of the festival's organisation "in line with a sustainable economic viability and matching the expectations of Festival audiences."

He also stressed that the Festival had proved its usefulness to the music video industry in France and abroad, as a showcase and meeting point for the industry's talent and as a place to discuss the isues surrounding the industry. "For those who know it, the Festival has succeeded, in four editions, to pave a difficult path in a sector hit by an unprecedented crisis."
