A keynote followed by a surprise screening and an opening party will probably give curious visitors present incentive on coming back the next days. Several movie producers and artists will then share their work among the days. As some headlines of this year's rencontres, we could quote for instance the screening of the film ‘Coast Zone’ co-directed by Merce Cunningham and Charles Atlas in 1983. In between movies time, two multimedia performances will be presented. As a show, people attending will even have the opportunity to take part in the performances. For example, in the first opening night, there will be ‘DOT, a videogame with no winner’. Henrique Roscoe, the creator of this audio-visual performance will present what could be called an original, contemporary and autonomous instrument.
