The Geneva and Suisse Romande area is a goldmine for cinema lovers – films from all over the world, often in original versions (vo) and in easy-to-reach locations. Just a bit pricey – but this is Switzerland.
There are the multiple film festivals all around the year. The Oriental one just ended, now get ready for one of the best documentary films festivals – the VISIONS DU RÉEL, in Nyon. Check out times and listings here.
For its 48th edition, the Festival will be featuring 20 documentaries from South Africa; Masterclasses with such top directors as Alain Cavalier, who will be receiving a Career Award; a focus on young talents from ages 4 to 26 in Espaces Jeunesse; and an exhaustive Competition program that highlights the realities of our world in all manners and forms.
