After two years of relocating to the virtual space due to the pandemic, we were happy to welcome our audience again in the cinema halls of the Votiv Kino and Kino De France! A rich and diverse film programme wanted to be discovered, to be discussed with the attending filmmakers, and to be reflected upon in our side events. In addition, an excerpt of our programme could be explored online.

Our 2022 programme can be explored in our ARCHIVE.
