“Let all masks fall of. Behind, we find the faces and smiles of the world via the transversal journey brought by the Festival d’Art. Its aim: to make you discover universes of sound and instrumental traditions that will amaze you. Whether they come from Scotland, Ireland or Cuba, whether it is a dialogue between West-African griots and an opera singer, or a play of different vocal cords that takes you on an imaginary journey… Whether it be magicians on the oud or banjo… This festival unites everything to enrapture you. Experience timeless moments in the present moment.”
The event and programme of the 2022 edition of Festival d’Art in Huy is based on this beautiful premise. A festival dedicated to music and voices from all around the world. The concerts are spread over the entire city and a musical walk makes it complete.

The International Francophone Film Festival is back with a new edition! An indispensable autumn event for cinephiles and the entire French-speaking audiovisual sector. The FIFF has been supported by PlayRight+ for many years now.
This year, too, PlayRight will award a performing artists with the Award for Best Actor in the context of the Short Film Competition.
Trappelend Talents wants to support young theatre makers in launching their career. Together with TheaterFestival, the organisation annually selects five or more theatre plays that are worth seeing, but couldn’t find their way to the theatre.
Because production processes of plays are often complex and difficult to oversee, Trappelend Talent makes its know-how and professional network available to theatre makers at the start of their career. This way, they want to open doors for them to the audiovisual sector.

The ARTONOV festival is inspired by the international Art Nouveau movement, both for its philosophy and its implementation. Its objective is to generate a convergence between the performing arts, such as music, dance, theatre, fashion and visual arts by promoting interdisciplinary collaboration and creation in Art Nouveau and Art Deco houses and other venues of remarkable architecture in Brussels.
“Rediscover our heritage by attending a performance, a concert or a show. Imagine the interiors of the most beautiful houses, the ‘hotels de maître’ of Brussels’ great masters or public places of remarkable architecture reinvented by established or emerging artists. Music, dance, circus, theatre, design, visual arts and culinary arts at the heart of our heritage and available to all. Far from rehashing the past, the ARTONOV Festival offers a fresh look at the concept of Total Art.
