New Generation is a tailored program made for young Swiss and international film students and filmmakers. This specialized program is presented through the Festival's workshops, screenings and masterclasses. It also offers a privileged access to Industry activities and its 1'200 on-site professionals.
Since its very beginning, Visions du Réel has been a festival for discoveries, always putting the spotlight on young Swiss and international talents. In that sense, Visions du Réel has always kept a close eye on films produced within various film schools by presenting them in designated categories, such as our Opening Scenes section.
To suit best the students' and young filmmakers' needs, New Generation brings together the main Swiss film schools, international film schools as well as young Swiss directors, whose films are programmed at Opening Scenes, in order to guide them in the best possible way during a very delicate stage: the transition from film student to film professional.
