About

GETXOPHOTO International Image Festival takes place in Getxo (Basque Country, Spain) and brings different proposals from photographers and visual storytellers from all over the world to the city, setting a contemporary conversation about the theme proposed each year. It is conceived as a transmedia platform from which to affect and activate critical thinking.

GETXOPHOTO inhabits public space and continues on its stake of using formats and unconventional exhibition spaces to show different images and stories, creating an open dialogue with its audience, while filling their everyday world with images. Most of the exhibitions are designed as open-air installations, highlighting the dialogue between image and environment. This year, moreover, the scope has been expanded to the Internet as a space where visual culture takes place. For the first time, a specific online programme has been designed with podcasts, apps, 3D models or live broadcasts, among other digital proposals that only take place on the net.
