For the second year running, the Video Mapping Festival ended on Saturday 31st of August in Arras, with 15 000 to 20 000 people attending the event on the Place des Héros. Time for us to review these last few months.
In 2018, Rencontres Audiovisuelles launched the first edition of the Video Mapping Festival, with the ambition to expose the video mapping in all its forms (monument, object, video game, immersive, interactive video mapping…) and to offer contents aimed at the general public, as well as professionals and students in international animation and video game schools.
In 2019, the Video Mapping Festival has grown, with the strengthening of its professional component and the development of its general public one.
The 2nd edition in a few numbers:
– 14 stops in the Hauts-de-France region from March to August 2019
– 43 creations from international and regional artists
– 13 mapping workshops led with local inhabitants
– 200 professionals attending a 3-day international seminary (IBSIC)
– A total of more than 165 000 spectators!
