This year, several foreign cultural institutions take part to the Rencontres Internationales with a specific programme related to the different themes and stakes of the manifestation: the Canadian Cultural Centre, the Goethe Institute, the Cervantes Institute, the Swedish Cultural Institute.
With 150 artists and filmmakers from all over the world, this exceptional edition will propose a programme which is being presented for the first time internationally - film, video, installation, net art, concerts - and which includes many film premieres, a video programme, an exhibition and multimedia concerts. Furthermore, the entire programme can be viewed and reviewed on request in the multimedia library.
This year's programme, which is particularly rich and dense, has been selected out of 6 200 proposals as well as by invitations made to certain artists and filmmakers. This program is the result of an elaborate international search of works of art: 200 works from Germany, France, Spain, and 60 other countries, bringing together internationally-known artists and filmmakers and young artists and filmmakers whose works will be presented for the first time in Paris.
