The Rencontres Internationales offers a forum for reflection and discovery dedicated to pratices of contemporary moving image. It introduces guests from all over the world : artists, filmmakers, institutions and emerging organizations, giving us a picture of an on-going creation, of new issues raised by the evolution of the production methods and ways to present new works, and of the different emerging artistic and cultural contexts.
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 create a necessary time during which 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 is supported by the DRAC Île-de-France - Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Île-de-France Regional Council and the City of Paris.
