From April 14th, all accredited professionals will be able to start watching films of Visions du Réel’s Official Selection, Partner’s Collections as well as many more unreleased documentaries.

Dedicated to cinema professionals, VdR–Industry and its activities represent a springboard for future films to find support in every stage of their production.

For 15 years now, our Industry activities aim to underline and exalt the variety and richness of creative documentaries while providing precious networking opportunities. In particular, our goal is to facilitate both national and international collaborations and partnerships between the projects’ representatives and the professionals attending the industry events, not only for today but also in the years to come.

Firstly, our most important activities and projects presentations will be held online from April 14 to April 17 in a format thought to be community centered and user-friendly. A high-end projects selection carefully crafted by VdR–Industry will bring together a broad spectrum of international professionals in order to recreate as best as we can the unique atmosphere of Visions du Réel.

On March 19, the Federal council had a press conference and indicated the new decisions made by the Swiss government: cinemas will not open to the general public for now, nor will we be able to organize public gatherings as the Festival is used to. As a result, Visions du Réel needs to adapt its form to the current situation: all our Industry activities are maintained and will be available online, although our on-site version of the event will be reduced to a smaller dimension, by invitation only. The most important dates for in-person attendance are April 18 to April 22.
