New Film and Contemporary Art
2014, Jun 03, Tue — 2014, Jun 08, Sun
The contemporary culture of images moves at the intersection of the aesthetic, social, and political questions of our time, grappling with the advancing developments in means of production and dissemination.
With a selection of more than one hundred previously unreleased films from forty countries, many appearing in Germany for the first time, RENCONTRES INTERNATIONALES will open a critical and future-oriented examination of these practices. In addition to screenings of the films, the program will include workshops, panel discussions, and conversations with artists, filmmakers, and experts, inviting the public to discover and reflect on new documentary, fictional, and multimedia approaches.
The program will be curated and introduced in thematic screenings by Nathalie Hénon and Jean-Francois Rettig. The new edition will be presented in January 2014 at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris before coming to Berlin in June.
