Dear followers of the FESTIMATGE,

Last March, we were writing to you to inform you of the postponement of the festival, so that the health situation asked us to do so. Now, I am very sorry to have to announce the definitive cancellation of the 15th FESTIMATGE.

An event of this magnitude requires the work of many people to carry it out and to adapt the different spaces for its celebration. The objective is that the maximum number of people enjoy their acts and, with the current circumstances, not only the control of the capacity, but also the willingness of citizens to participate in cultural events, has made us doubt the suitability of carrying out this year’s edition and has led us to make the tough decision to cancel the FESTIMATGE 2020.

With the perspective that this situation can be extended in time and become something daily during the coming months or years, we set out to prepare for the FESTIMATGE 2021, with all the measures and with the awareness that life continues and culture cannot stop.

And, to say goodbye to this unsuccessful FESTIMATGE and pay a small tribute to it, the organization has decided to hold a symbolic act to show the award-winning photographs and the most outstanding award-winning shorts. It will surely take place on Sunday October 18 in the Sala Mozart. We will keep you informed and keep in touch through our networks and website:

Thank you very much for your understanding and support. We meet again at FESTIMATGE 2021!
