LYON LIGHT FESTIVAL FORUM
The City of Lyon is at the very forefront of light creation and its technological evelopments, and every year welcomes the world to its Festival of Lights. Acknowledged by the public and professionals alike as the reference event in this field, the Festival of Light teams of the City of Lyon, together with the LUCI association and the Lumières Cluster, have set up the Lyon Light Festival Forum.
Within this structure, artists, foreign delegations and representatives of the greatest International Light Festivals come to soak up new artistic and technical trends in this immense open-air showroom.
The Lyon Light Festival Forum provides particularly good opportunities for meeting the different light-creation professionals and facilitates exchanges around a packed programme: symposia, conferences, visits, meetings with the organising teams of the Festival of Lights and, among its key events, the platform of meetings between creators and organisers of foreign festivals.
The Festival of Lights extends the traditional festival of the 8th December, when the residents of Lyon celebrate the Virgin Mary, whose statue stands on the Fourvière hill, overlooking the city. They put candle lamps on their window sills and balconies and wander the streets of the city.
