ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

From the 24th July until the 2nd August the city of Girona will be celebrating the II International Mapping Festival of Girona (FIMG)

From the 24th July until the 2nd August the city of Girona will be celebrating the II International Mapping Festival of Girona (FIMG), a festival that is open to everyone and which merges Girona's architectural value with contemporary creation through innovation and the audiovisual arts.

For thet days the city fills up with light as it becomes the global mapping reference. Artists and professionals in the field of mapping will demonstrate the high level of artistic value this discipline holds via large-format projections onto some of the city's most iconic buildings.

The FIMG also hosts the II International Mapping Contest; runner-up projects in the open mapping contest will be projected on façades and buildings throughout Girona. Another activity celebrated as part of the FMIG is the I International Mapping Congress, a space for debate and reflection among professionals in this field.

In addition, the FIMG 2015 also presents other activities connected to the world of mapping, such as the artist fellowship grant awarded by the City Council of Girona and Bòlit, Contemporary Art Centre Girona; the free mapping courses or the commissioned mappings, like the ones that will be showcased on the festival's inaugural night.

The goal is to make the FIMG a free, open festival that is accessible to all. A participatory festival where spectators are able to value the proposals they like the most and everyone who wants to can get a chance to learn the art of video projection. Welcome to the FIMG 2015. Visit Girona and fall in love with the magic of the lights.

Girona's Mapping Festival is an initiative of the City Council of Girona, made possible with the collaboration of BLOOM.
