Visions du Réel provides different possibilities for getting to grips with documentary film

Projects in a variety of formats have been put in place with the aim of providing an opening for everyone. The Festival thus aspires to making itself accessible and inclusive to all

Four goals have therefore been set:

  • Facilitating access to films through supervision during screenings.
  • Encouraging the development of everyone’s critical judgement.
  • Comparing the diversity of existing cinematographical languages.
  • Making it possible to support the distribution of the projects undertaken to increase visibility.

To meet these goals, several cultural activities are available: discovering documentary film thanks to special screenings, developing critical faculties through discussions, directing short films, or raising awareness of the different cinematographical formats thanks to workshops.
