Description

A city-wide international festival of photography that has become the largest in the U.K. and Ireland.



Launched in 2011, this annual photographic event has been described as one of the "best photography festivals in the world" (Capture Magazine) and attracts upwards of 100 thousand visitors a year, celebrating some of the finest National and International contemporary photography across 30 museums, galleries and public spaces. Capturing wide appeal through popular culture, accessible themes and unexpected encounters with photography, the festival aims to instil and inspire public enjoyment and participation by utilising the most accessible artistic medium and bringing it to new audiences in cool and unusual ways.

The programme consistently addresses the political, social and cultural climate of Belfast, raising global issues and animating them through high caliber international photography.

The Festival consists of exhibitions, talks, symposiums, workshops, screenings, masterclasses, portfolio reviews and tours.
