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 the Centre Pompidou, the
Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Reina Sofia National museum
and the Spanish Cinematheque in Madrid. 
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 where 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.
