Sunday 4th June to Sunday 1st October 2023
Just across the border from Eindhoven, The Netherlands, is the town of Pelt, in Belgium where the streets are filled with over 1,000 photos on a route of approx 3km long. Photos are also in the Church, in CC Palethe and at the old Campus of WICO; photos are on walls and large posts. Photos everywhere! 
This photo festival is recurring every two years, now is the fourth edition. I participated in 2021 and again now in 2023, representing the RPS Benelux Chapter, as a jury member both times and organiser of our workshops and our own members print expo. In 2021 it was 'People at Work' and this year it is 'Daily Life of Us'. 
The photo festival focuses on people. 'Lens op de Mens' with the sub-theme of 'Humour' this year. Martin Parr HonFRPS is a guest, his photos are in CC Palethe and he will be giving a presentation of his work on Saturday 23rd September. 
Diana Bokje will be giving our workshop on 'Mindful Photography' on Sunday 24th September. So a weekend worth staying in Pelt! 
See website for full programme and details on how to sign-up.

In the 2021 edition of the Fotofestival, we organised a Documentary Photography workshop led by Pieter van Leeuwen. It went very well and there is a short video of the workshop on the YouTube pages of the Fotofestival, see link:
