New Images: Programming, Education, Innovation
Since 1998, Rencontres Audiovisuelles work around new images in the Hauts-de-France region:
• Programming: the organisation coordinates festivals (International Short Film Festival, Fête de l’anim’), creates a yearly programme for a projection venue in Lille (L’hybride), and curates numerous programming actions in the region.
• Education: Rencontres Audiovisuelles organise educational screenings (including an itinerant short film programme, Ciné Soupe, and school screenings), awareness-raising actions, audiovisual creation workshops and artistic practice workshops around images and media education, and offer support to parents and professionals regarding the use of screens by the youngsters (Ma famille et les écrans).
• Innovation: the organisation, through the Video Mapping European Center, supports the development of the video mapping sector in Europe, and particularly in the Hauts-de-France region, through research, training, creation and events (Video Mapping Festival, Video Mapping Contest).
