Unfortunately, it can prove tricky for the elderly and very elderly to find their bearings and fit in at a festival as the infrastructures and the means of communication are sometimes poorly adapted to this segment of the population.

At the Festival, we think that it is vital for the senior citizen audience to be able to continue to attend cultural events without fear of the logistical aspects that form part of such an outing. For this reason, we have decided to make every effort so that the festival provides suitable infrastructures, as well as information and support services on site.

For several years, Visions du Réel has been collaborating with Pro Senectute to organise special screenings and encounters for the region’s senior citizens.
