FORUM – DEBATES
December 1st, at the Châtelet Theatre
December 2-5, at the Centre Pompidou
– “Où va le cinema?” organized by the Centre Pompidou
December 6th, at the Jeu de Paume

The Rencontres Internationales invites filmmakers, curators, artistic directors and programmers from European and extra-European museums, art centres and biennales in the fields of contemporary cinema, video and media art. The debates aim to develop a reflection on the concerns and tracks explored in each country in order to debrief this creation and accompany it, as much from a critical point of view, as from the point of view of the public and the artists.

MULTIMEDIA CONCERT
December 1st, at the Châtelet Theatre
Thomas Köner
Le manifeste du futurisme – French Premiere.
Thomas Köner invokes le “futurist manifesto” by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti then proceeds to a phase of deconstruction. Call it a return to the future (futurism), for a society meriting the label “post-utopian/post-futurist”.
