Public & cultural outreach

Making documentary filmmaking accessible to all has long been a priority for Visons du Réel. Discovering other cultures or your own culture, looking at the world in a different manner, learning, imagining, dreaming… all of these things should be within everyone’s reach.

We therefore set ourselves four goals:

  • Facilitating access to films and activities
  • Encouraging the development of everyone’s critical judgement
  • Sharing the diversity of existing cinematographical languages
  • Including spectators with disabilities

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 perceptions of films, particularly by introducing audiodescription to all audiences.
