Description

Belfast Photo Festival is delighted to announce its 2021 festival edition: Future(s). Now in its tenth year, Belfast Photo Festival has been described as one of the "best photography festivals in the world" (Capture Magazine), celebrating some of the finest national and international contemporary photography.

Marking its tenth anniversary, this year’s festival takes Future(s) as its theme, addressing a broad range of approaches to the idea of futurity and speculative futures. The festival explores the Anthropocene, climate change and human impact on the planet; feminist and queer futures; post-pandemic futures; the effect of technological advancement on humanity; AI's impact on image-making practice, and the future of the photographic medium itself.

In compliance with Covid-19 safety regulations, Belfast Photo Festival will be the first large-scale public festival in Northern Ireland to take place indoors and outdoors. Explore the future with us through online events led by industry experts and immersive offline exhibitions and installations from some of the world’s most innovative photographers.

In our era of pandemics, global migration, political upheaval and technological connection—when perhaps the future has never felt so unclear— Belfast Photo Festival 2021 offers a refreshing and provocative programme of exhibitions and events that urge us to question: What kind of world do we want to collectively create?

In compliance with Covid-19 safety regulations, all events will take place online and physical exhibitions will be presented outside at various sites and galleries across Belfast.

This event is FREE. Pay what you can to attend online talks. Free admission to attend public outdoor exhibitions.
