Swiss documentary festival Visions de Réel, which was to have taken place from April 24 to May 2 in the lakeside town of Nyon, has revealed details of the online format it has developed to replace the physical event which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Nearly 98% of the works in the International Feature Film Competition, International Burning Lights Competition, International Medium Length and Short Film Competition and Opening Scenes will be available on the festival platform.
