FIFA in the spotlight at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.


 
Continuing a longstanding collaboration with the National Gallery of Art (NGA), The International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) will present a selection of films from its 37th edition in Washington, D.C. on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 December
A veritable movie marathon for American cinephiles looking to discover the latest and most enriching films on art, the program will consist of five films the first day and six films the following day.

With the renewal of its alliance with this prestigious cultural institution, FIFA remains firmly anchored on the national and international scene. As such, the Executive Director Philippe U. del Drago expresses pride that the Festival remains a diversified and preferred distribution network for promoting the creativity and the work of outstanding directors and producers: "FIFA was present in Whitehorse yesterday, will be showcased in Tourcoing, France this weekend and will be in the spotlight at the National Gallery of Art next week. These international appearances demonstrate that we remain the leaders in our field, pursuing our mission with heart and ambition. FIFA must carry out its mandate beyond its festival period in Montreal. As such, more than one hundred screenings were programmed outside the festival in 2019."
