The great opening of Fotofestiwal

The opening of Fotofestiwal is tomorrow! Can you believe it? We still can’t…

We are sure you know Fotofestiwal timetable [1] even better than we do – but let’s sum up:

Tomorrow we all meet at 6.00 pm. in Art_Inkubator, Tymienieckiego 3, fot the festival opening. There, you can see a lot of exhibitions, starting with Grand Prix Fotofestiwal 2015 [2] (including the awards ceremony!). Remember about our special exhibition: DISCOVERY SHOW [3] with amazing photos of Mario Macilau (you already know some of his works from this year’s visual identification). You can also take a look at pre-auction exhibition “Views. Landscape in Polish Photography [4]” – imagine those photos on your house’s walls! But it’s not all – you have to check in the progremme.

Except for the openings in Art_Inkubator, it is worth going to the Filmschool in Lodz at 5.00 and to andel’s Hotel at 8.30 pm. In the hotel, you can see the exhibition “Debuts edition 2015 [5]” in a beautiful scenery of modern, industrial space.

How about next days?

On Friday, our day plan starts with a passionate lecture of amazing Radu Stern [6] at 11.00 am. At 12.30 pm, during awards ceremony, we will know the winner of the Photographic Publication of the Year 2015 [7]. We will also have a moment to ponder today’s image-communication, during a presentation “If you’re not on Instagram, you don’t exist”.

Also on Friday we open our second festival centre – OFF Piotrkowska. Photographers will have an opportunity to confront their work with famous professionals on PORT-OFF-FOLIO Review [8]. All of us can meet Dougie Wallace [9] on book signing, you can also see his ehxibition “Wild life” there. But it’s just a beginning: we wait for you on satelite exhibions’ openings, slide show and afterparty.

During the first festival weekend, remember about our special HIT THE ROAD [10] project: presentations in words and pictures, prepared by Fotofestival’s Art Director, Alison Nordstrom. What more,on Saturday at 5.00 pm, we start our photography auction – get ready to that!
