The Festival Présence (s) Photographie 2019 will take place from 05 to 21 April 2019 in Montélimar and the surrounding cities.
Around a main exhibition, at the Espace Chabrillan Art Center, a dozen photographers are invited to exhibit their work in multiple locations in the city and its surroundings (exteriors, galleries, exhibition halls, …).
Several screenings are scheduled on the big screen. This is an opportunity for photographers to present their work to an audience of amateurs and professionals. A moment of exchange and sharing with big names in photography. During each session, the public is called upon to elect a slide show, the count of these votes designates the public’s prize.
Screening sessions are also held in the high schools Alain Borne de Montelimar and Xavier Mallet, Teil. On this occasion, high school students choose the price of high school students.
