In 2017, the Festival Pluie d’Images looks at the notion of frontier. This imaginary line, which sometimes separates, sometimes joins two territories, is more than ever brought back to the forefront of current affairs with the great migratory waves of recent months.


For its 13th edition, the festival invites you to discover the work of professional photographers, amateurs, clubs and collectives around the theme Frontière (s). More than 30 exhibitions on Brest and its metropolis, ambulatory vernissage, meetings, ” Faites de la photo ”, guided tours, educational activities, workshops, screenings, debates…


Mixing geography, politics, economics …, the frontier sometimes crystallizes the balance of power between two states whereas elsewhere it has virtually disappeared, as it were, between the countries of the Schengen Area. These photographic works, interested in geopolitical tensions, the abstraction of these separations, or the geography that materializes them, invite us to an essential and necessary reflection by immersing ourselves in history to better understand the present and to apprehend the ” to come up.


Free and free exhibitions will be presented in various places in Brest, Guipavas, Relecq-Kerhuon, Plougastel-Daoulas, Saint Renan, Daoulas and Loperhet.
