The ‘Rencontres internationales’ offer more than a simple presentation of the works. They introduce an intercultural forum gathering various guests from all over the world – artists and directors recognized on the international scene along with young artists and directors who still cannot enjoy a substantial distribution, directors from organizations and emerging structures – testifying of the vivacity of creation and its diffusion, but also of the artistic and cultural contexts that often are in transition or sometimes experiencing deep changes. The festival reflects specificities and crossings of contemporary art practices, and work out this necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged.
