Call for applications for the screenings at « Nuits Photographiques de Pierrevert », from 30 July to 02 August 2020
This Festival keynote events are its fully booked nightly open-air screenings. A selection of works by well-known photographers are presented on a giant screen every evening alongside those of emerging artists.
No theme is imposed – the focus is on distinct perspectives, new visual writing, strong viewpoints. As every year, we will select topics ranging from societal issues, international reporting, still-lives to fashion series –We will also welcome more lighthearted, digressive, slow-paced works using counterpoints. So don’t be shy!
Shortlisted photographers are required to be present on the festival – at least on the day of their work’s screening. However, they are invited to attend and enjoy the whole four days of the festival. Volunteer inhabitants open their homes and offer free accommodation during the whole duration of their stay.
Travel expenses are not covered.
Application file for screenings:
