Programme 2024

Discover the programme for our 55th edition (12 – 21 April 2024). A bold and well-rounded official selection of 165 films from 50 different countries, with gender parity for the second year running. With 88 world premieres and 14 international premieres amongst the 128 new films being shown, Visions du Réel reaffirms its position as Switzerland’s second most important festival in terms of launching new films, and as an unmissable international event for non-fiction cinema.

In addition to the three previously announced guests – Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhang-Ke, American author-director John Wilson, and French director Alice Diop – the Festival will, over the course of ten days, have the honour of welcoming key figures from the world of contemporary cinema such as Carlo Chatrian, Martín Rejtman, Carmen Jaquier, Eduardo Williams, and the author Christine Angot. The 55th edition will open with the Danish film As the Tide Comes In by Juan Palacios (co-directed by Sofie Husum Johannesen).
