FIPA – International Festival of Audiovisual Programmes


Each year, Biarritz hosts the FIPA Festival: the 29th edition will take place from January 19th to 24th 2016 and this year it is Spain that will be celebrated, with Donostia-San Sebastian being the European Capital of Culture 2016.

Over several days, in between projections, exhibitions and debates, take long strolls through Biarritz and discover a selection of films from all over the world in the town’s different venues: Bellevue, Gare du Midi, Casino, Le Royal Cinema, Le Colisée and even at the multimedia library.

On this special occasion, the actor Kad Merad and Mathias Énard, who won the Prix Goncourt literary award in 2015, will be attending the festival.
