INTERNATIONAL SELECTION

After the 2020 festival switched to its online edition – and, of course, we’re all impatient to find our way back into the film theatres – Cinéma du réel is proposing a singular, unifying and enhanced form for this year’s festival: CANALRÉEL.
We’re hoping that this online festival will be enriching, almost the same as the audience’s traditional experience, swept up in the whirlwind of events, screenings and encounters.
