For the last rays of the summer sun, join us for the OSR Festival at Genève-Plage. The festival, which will be held from 17 to 19 August 2023, will open with a symphonic programme on Thursday and a film concert on Friday. The festival will conclude on Saturday with a jazz programme.

Named “Greatest Film of All Time” in 2012 by the British Film Institute’s Sight and Sound, this psychological thriller about fear and obsession hypnotizes audiences on the big screen. “It would be heresy to suggest that the greatness of ”Vertigo” is owed to anyone but Hitchcock, whose fingerprints cover every aspect of the production. But there is a second genius at work in ”Vertigo,…. (Bernard) Herrmann was an absolute master of the strange art of film scoring”. Alex Ross, NY Times

”Vertigo” is a symphony for film and orchestra.” New Yorker
