company profile

Visions du Réel, International Film Festival Nyon, Switzerland, is one of the leading non fiction film festivals worldwide, premiering a variety of approaches of cinema of the real throughout its programme. It includes several competitive sections – presenting films in world and international premieres – as well as a few non competitive and curated ones, for a total of around 170 films.

With the aim of discovering emerging directors and screening films that through their formal and aesthetic choices provide personal and singular expressions and descriptions of past, present or future realities, it freely interprets the very definition of non fiction filmmaking and its implementation.

The Industry activities, which bring over 1350 professionals to Switzerland and are held as part of the Festival, are dedicated to international projects at every stage, offering a wide range of professional opportunities for attendees, in regard to tutoring, funding, co-production, promotion and film-rights acquisition.
