It was during its press conference on April 11, 2018 that the FIMAV unveiled the last elements of its programming. In addition to the festival's 20 concerts, there will be a circuit of sound art installations in public spaces, a visual arts exhibit and two experimental short films programs, one Japanese and one Quebecois.
Victoriaville, March 22, 2018 - Yesterday, we played hosts to Pierrette Gingras (New Music Cartel) and Teresa Hron (Canadian New Music Network) who were in Victoriaville to visit Hôtel Le Victorin’s convention centre, where part of their next conventions will take place for the very first time.
The international presenters’ members of New Music Cartel and the delegates of the CNMN will be staying in Victoriaville from Thursday, May 17 to Saturday, May 19 to attend conferences, workshops and networking events, before they move to Montreal to conclude their gatherings. They will also be attending several concerts at the 34th FIMAV 2018 and visit our circuit of sound art installations in public spaces. That’s close to 150 new music presenters and practitioners from Canada, the USA and Europe coming to Victoriaville this spring, some of them for the very first time!
Productions Plateforme Inc. team is proud to unveil the FIMAV’s new design, created by Isabelle Beaumier for its 34th edition, which will be held from May 17 to 20, 2018! Stay tuned, for in the next few weeks a lot of unveilings are scheduled…
