Live streaming and interactive immersive space

This new edition will be held in a hybrid format, live from the Louvre auditorium, with events and programmes filmed and broadcast live on our website, simultaneously accessible in a new immersive space developed for the occasion: Based on 3D scans and photogrammetry of the Louvre auditorium, this space for exploration and experimentation will offer visitors, via their web browser, real-time access to the programme taking place at the same time in the physical spaces, as well as to specific programmes only available in these online spaces.

Hybrid spaces

For 6 days, the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin will offer a true laboratory of discovery and reflection dedicated to contemporary moving image practices. The theme of “hybrid spaces” will run through the whole of this year’s programme, in the screening sessions, performances, during the forum and round tables.
