Visions du Réel - International Film Festival

Werner Herzog in Nyon


We are very proud and happy to announce that this year, the Prix Raiffeisen Maître du Réel will be awarded to German director based in Los Angeles Werner Herzog, honouring his career.

A selection of his films will be screened during the Festival (5-13 April) and he will be giving a Masterclass. In partnership with the Cinémathèque suisse and the ECAL, several events are being organised to give the audience the opportunity to meet the legendary film director.

Since 1962, Werner Herzog has been evolving freely between forms and processes, fiction and documentary. He has directed about 70 films.
