We have some important information 🙂 In 2023 Fotofestiwal will start on Thursday, June 15, right after the long weekend and will last until June 25th.
Together we will create an international digital archive of the 20th century consisting of photos from the private collections. The Fortepan Archive began many years ago in Budapest. It was inspired by a plastic bag full of anonymous photographs found in a dumpster in Budapest.
One exhibition, three talks, five workshops, twenty curators and one hundred artists! From 4 to 6 November the best talents of european photography and heads of major international contemporary photography institutions will meet at Camera Centro Italiano per la Fotografia for the FUTURES Annual Event.
We are looking for artists with unique personalities and projects presenting bold visions. Selected projects will be shown at Fotofestiwal 2023!

These include Neighbours’ Photo Studio, music Festival of All Cultures at Piotrkowska Street, a tour of artistic Łódź or discussions on the possibility of agreement between cultures with different values.

We have just started accepting contest entries!
This year’s Fotofestiwal will touch upon the topic of COMMUNITIES, which unexpectedly has become closer to us in the face of recent events in Europe. And as a result of these events, we decided to update our program and invite festivals from Belarus and Ukraine to exhibit in Łódź. We will invite you to a kind of tri-festival between June 9 and 26 to Łódź, and today we are announcing part of our program.
From among 962 projects, the international jury selected works by seven artists, whose projects we will be able to see at exhibitions during the Fotofestiwal in 2022 (June 9-26, 2022).
