Visions du Réel opens to classes from 11 to 15 April 2022

Considered one of the most important European festivals in the field of documentary production, Visions du Réel offers students in French-speaking Switzerland the opportunity to live the cultural experience of a film festival and to discover quality documentary works often absent from the big screens. The offer of “Scolaires du Réel” includes the screening of a documentary, a day pass to the Festival or an online offer.
