International Exchanges

Throughout the year, we engage in on-going collaboration and exchanges with fellow photography festivals and cultural events around the world. We believe this is a great way to give more exposure to the photographers in our programme. Our programme coordinator Françoise Callier actively participates in various event in a variety of ways, including curating exhibitions and projections showcases of workshop alumni’s work and photographers featured in previous festival programmes.
