From September 1st to 27th, 2019
GETXOPHOTO, International Image Festival, takes place in Getxo, Basque Country, close to Bilbao. This festival takes place in September and is committed to the use of formats, supports and unconventional spaces to circulate the work of international visual storytellers.
GETXOPHOTO is conceived to walk around the city and delve into the exhibitions in a few hours. Most of them are set outdoors, which allows the audience to decide the moment and rhythm of the visit. We also recommend some routes, depending on the time available or the needs of the visitors: together with children, full day or just a few hours, etc.
All the exhibitions are free and, besides, the Festival offers a wide program of activities, addressed to professionals and amateurs willing to learn or live through an experience around the image.
