His films were shown in the whole world, including retrospectives in the U.S, France, Germany, Canada and Argentina. He directed 34 films. During the Festival, a retrospective of his works will be organized, as well as his very personal cinema lesson. During the entire month of May, La Cinémathèque suisse in Lausanne will screen all of his works.
Richard Dindo will receive his career Award, the Sesterce d’or – Prix Maître du Réel, on April 29, 2014, at the official anniversary celebration organized under the high patronage of Ruth Dreifuss.
