The Rencontres Internationales offer more than just a simple presentation of the works. It introduces an intercultural forum gathering various guests from all over the world – artists and filmmakers, institutions and emerging organizations – to testify to their reflections and their experiences, but also to artistic and cultural contexts that are often undergoing deep changes.

The Rencontres Internationales reflect specificities and convergences of artistic practices between new cinema and contemporary art, explore emerging media art practices and their critical purposes, and make possible a necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged. The event aims at presenting works to a broad audience, at creating circulations between different art practices and between different audiences, as well as creating new exchanges between artists, filmmakers and professionals. It seeks to contribute to a reflection on our contemporary culture of image via a compelling program opened to everyone.

The Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid is supported by the DRAC Île-de-France – Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Île-de-France Regional Council and the City of Paris.
