A photography festival with a mission

Since 2004, the La Gacilly Photo Festival has been defined by its unique geographical setting at the heart of the rural environment in Brittany, and by its commitment to the great environmental challenges facing society. This annual gathering of more than 300,000 people is an opportunity to share a superb experience with family and friends in an atmosphere of togetherness, authenticity and meaning.

Today, we are reaffirming our desire to be an active participant in the transition to a greener economy and outlook.

As a highly unique medium working to raise the alarm and propose solutions, we want to foster the development of a collective consciousness and generate a contagious sense of enthusiasm about the issues we raise.

In this way, as well as being committed to these causes, we hope to inspire commitment in others, too!

This contribution to the common good, to environmental, societal, economic and cultural issues is embodied by 6 topics that enframe our actions !
