PLEASE FORWARD this piece of information to creative organizations, art networks, production organizations, artists and filmmakers you are in contact with.

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

The ‘Rencontres Internationales’ reflects specificities and convergences of art practices between new cinema and contemporary art, explores emerging media art practices and their critical purposes, and work out this necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged.

The event aims at presenting those 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 wishes to contribute to a reflection on our contemporary culture of image via a demanding program opened to everyone.

In 2007, the ‘Rencontres Internationales’, which initially took place in Paris and Berlin, opened up to a third city: Madrid. This event now constitutes a unique artistic and cultural platform in Europe for artists, professional networks and different audiences. The venues in the three cities are in particular the Centre Pompidou and the Jeu de Paume national museum in Paris, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Reina Sofia national museum and the Spanish Cinematheque in Madrid.

The ‘Rencontres Internationales’ is a non commercial event without competition, supported by French, German, Spanish and international institutions
