More than a simple presentation of works, the Rencontres Internationales propose an authentic intercultural forum gathering guests from the whole world - artists and filmmakers, directors of institutions and emergent organizations - to testify about their experiences and analysis of these cultural and artistic contexts that often undergo deep changes.
The 'Rencontres Internationales' reflect specificities and convergences between artistic forms in new cinema and contemporary art, explore the emergent artistic practices and its critical purposes and allows this necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged.

Several cultural institutions in Paris are partners of the Rencontres Internationales and they offer a specific program in relation to the thematic and challenges of the Rencontres: the Goethe Institut, the Instituto Cervantes, the Canadian Cultural Centre, the Swedish Cultural Centre, the Finnish Institute.

The complete program, of which 95% is presented in world premiere, can be viewed on request in the video library.

Complete program available from November 23
