Painting With Light Festival

This year, the National Gallery presents the new edition of Painting with Light , a film Festival which examines the significance of art in society by looking at how people live and work with art around the world.

The festival selected over 30 thought-provoking feature-length and short films, as well as single-channel video works, many of which are premiering here. These films bring to light the reality and experience of displacement, an issue that is central to today’s most critical global debates. In telling such stories, filmmakers reveal their responses to the issues of the day, their desire to stage an intervention, and their dreams for humanity. The films will be presented across four sections: Holding Space, Ways of Seeing, Special Focus and Southeast Asian Shorts.

7 French films are presented during the festival, from 5 to 28 October :
