Year after year, Cinéma du réel presents the public with the best and most innovative documentary productions worldwide, and brings together the professionals making them across the globe. Thanks to an out-of-competition selection of rare, heritage, and contemporary films, Cinéma du réel helps to understand formal developments and experiments in connection with the history of cinema.
Following the two online editions of 2020 and 2021, this 44th edition aims to return to theaters. It will hence return to guests, events, and discussions with the public, in a word: to togetherness. Building on the experience of the two previous years, Cinéma du réel will be offering an “enhanced” version of the festival.
