52 Visions du Réel will present 142 films originating from 58 countries. 41% of the films selected were directed by women; 31 films are first films. While the International Film Festival Nyon will be held predominantly in a virtual format, its official selection emphasises its pioneering role when it comes to exploring the spectrum of documentary filmmaking practices. Moreover, with 26 Swiss (co)productions, the festival affirms itself as an essential partner of national creation.
