> The programming of films and videos unites short, medium and full-length films, experimental movies, video art, documentaries, animated films, on super 8, 16 mm, 35 mm and video.
Paris/Berlin Festival #4 proposes to its public films made by independent film directors, by cinema school students, by directors working outside any institutional network, films made in 'classical' production, as well as films made by famous directors and artists who, by the spirit of their approach, their committment and their research, take part actively in the progress of the visual arts.

> The programming of “multimedia, interventions and installations”, opened to plastic art, unites performance, happening, action, happening with projection, concert live with projection, sound poetry, sound installation, video installation, art on line and CD-Rom. The contribution of these different language is to be taken in consideration. Their copresence during the Paris/Berlin Festival #4 will enable the public to re-situate the film projection inside the history of visual art which is in permanent progress.

> Debates, each day, will center around a particular guest: artists and directors, art and cinema critics, writers, academics and others actively engaged in the arts and culture.
