The Festival les Utopiales, a must-see event
Jules Vernes and the Surrealists have left their mark on Nantes, a heritage that is characteristic of the city's cultural landscape. The aim of this festival is to introduce as many people as possible to a projection of the world to come, new technologies at the service of the imagination.
Its multidisciplinary programme is original: with the projection of films, the presentation of authors, draftsmen and researchers; but also the creation of exhibitions and artistic installations. Thanks to its quality and relevance, this event has become an essential event over the years.
A festival accessible to all types of audiences
This festival is aimed at both novices and enthusiasts. Here, science fiction is explored as an excellent pedagogical tool to reflect its extension into reality.
During this event, creators and researchers exchange, reflect and transmit around 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.
The Coding / Decoding theme
This year, round tables, conferences, exhibitions will be offered around a theme: « Coding / Decoding ». By deciphering the encrypted codes in all the thoughts, actions, achievements and very flesh of humanity, science fiction has always striven to decode our reality.
