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.


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. The venues in the three cities are in particular the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Reina Sofia National Museum and the Spanish Cinematheque in Madrid.

This non-commercial and non-competitive event is supported by French, German, Spanish and international organizations:
