PLEASE FORWARD this 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. 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' reflects specificities and convergences of artistic practices between new

cinema and contemporary art, explores emerging media art practices and their critical purposes, and makes

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.





PARIS/BERLIN/MADRID



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 various audiences.



In 2007-2008 the venues in the three cities were in particular the Centre Pompidou, the Jeu de Paume and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Reina Sofia national museum, the auditorium of the Ministerio de Cultura, the Art Centre El ?guila de la Comunidad de Madrid, the Instituto Cervantes and the Spanish Cinematheque in Madrid. It is a non-commercial event without competition, supported by French, German, Spanish and international institutions.
