Connect to Reality – Creativity Matters

03. November 2017

After discussing distribution in Locarno and production in Zurich, Swiss cinema professionals will debate issues related to the creation of films in Switzerland on November 7, as the third session of Connect to Reality takes place at Geneva International Film Festival. The discussions will focus on the development of Swiss fiction and documentary films, on the continuity of the work of authors and directors and on the succession, training and mobility between different contemporary audiovisual expressions (cinema, television, video, VR, AR, etc.).



New think tank for the Swiss film business

Locarno Festival, Zurich Film Festival and Geneva International Film Festival Tous Écrans joined forces this year to launch "Connect to Reality." The new trilateral initiative, built as a national think tank, is meant as an investigative tool for Swiss industry professionals, in order to analyze the challenges of development, production and distribution of their films. It aspires to contribute to the success of Swiss productions, both at home and abroad. Through three annual events, whose results will be shared in a joint publication, "Connect to Reality" aims to become a laboratory of ideas for Swiss cinema.
