International Festival of Archaeological Films

Presentation of the Festival

A unique Festival in Switzerland


Every two years, the Roman Museum organises the Nyon International Festival of Archaeological Films. The Festival has already been held eight times – in 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 et 2013. Nyon has become the prime Swiss venue for devotees of films on archaeology and joins a group of similar festivals in France (Bordeaux, Amiens, Besançon), Germany (Kiel), Italy (Rovereto), Belgium (Brussels), Spain (Oiasso) and Greece (Athens).

The Museum’s aim is a festival that is first and foremost for the public, who thus have an opportunity to discover a variety of topics, and different perceptions of the vast world of archaeology. This very dynamic science is arousing growing interest among an ever wider audience. The documentary film is assuredly one of the most appropriate ways of presenting it and bringing alive its numerous facets.

A substantial number of high-quality archaeological films already exist, produced either by major film companies or by bodies that include museums, archaeological missions or departments, amateur enthusiasts, etc.

The Festival is usually in March, every two years.

Next Festival will take place in 2019!
