The 'Rencontres Internationales' offers more than a simple presentation of the works. It introduces an intercultural forum gathering various guests from all over the world - artists and filmmakers, institutions and emerging organizations - to testify to their reflections and their experiences, but also to artistic and cultural contexts that are often undergoing deep changes.
The 'Rencontres Internationales' reflects specificities and convergences of artistic practices between new cinema and contemporary art, explores emerging media art practices and their critical purposes, and makes possible a necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged.
The event aims at presenting works to a broad audience, at creating circulations between different art practices and between different audiences, as well as creating new exchanges between artists, filmmakers and professionals.
It seeks to contribute to a reflection on our contemporary culture of image via a compelling program opened to everyone..

In 2007, the Rencontres Internationales, which initially took place in Paris and Berlin, opened up to a third city: Madrid. This event now constitutes a unique artistic and cultural platform in Europe for artists, professional networks and various audiences.
The venues in the three cities are in particular in Paris the Centre Pompidou and the Jeu de Paume national museum, in Berlin the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and in Madrid the Reina Sofia National museum, the auditorium of the Ministry for Culture, the Tabacalera - futur national centre for visual arts, the Spanish Cinematheque, the CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo de la Comunidad de Madrid.
