ArtFIFA: International Festival of Films on Art

December 13 – 14

An annual event in Montreal for almost forty years, Festival International du Film sur l’Art (known as ArtFIFA), the longest running film festival devoted exclusively to art, showcases film and media productions relating to all forms of endeavor—from painting and sculpture to architecture, design, music, dance, fashion, restoration, photography, literature, and cinema—and all eras. The National Gallery of Art’s two-day program is a sampling of work from the thirty-seventh edition held in Montreal in March 2019, a thirteen-day event that featured some two hundred films from forty different countries. Special thanks to Maxime Labrecque and Philippe U. del Drago, Executive Director, Festival International du Film sur l'Art.
