The International Festival Signes De Nuit based in Paris is made up of films, which reflects new views, original imagery and critical approach to the crucial points of the modern human existence.

Jean Rouch International Film Festival selects documentary films of anthropological interest that explore the social and cultural continuity and change of human societies, as well as their relationship with the environment.
