The Festival les Utopiales, a must-see event
Jules Vernes and the surrealists have left their mark on Nantes, a characteristic heritage of the city's cultural landscape. The aim of this festival is to enable as many people as possible to discover a projection of the world to come, with new technologies at the service of the imagination.
Its multidisciplinary programme is original: with film screenings, presentations by authors, designers and researchers, as well as exhibitions and artistic installations. Through its quality and relevance, this event has become a must over the years.
A festival accessible to all types of public
This festival is aimed at both novices and enthusiasts. Here, science fiction is explored as an excellent pedagogical tool to reporting on its extension into the real world.
During this event, creators and researchers exchange, reflect and transmit on the transformation of the world. It is a real invitation to cultivate our curiosity, to understand the challenges of new technologies in perpetual evolution, to think about the society of tomorrow.
This year, the theme is "Transformations". Round tables, conferences and exhibitions will be offered.
