The festival

What’s OVNi ? 

At the confluence of the artistic and hotel worlds, the Ovni festival was created in Nice in 2015 as an innovative and original platform for the promotion of video art.

Every year, at the end of novembre, OVNi brings together a number of cultural players from the city of Nice to create an event and give visibility to emerging video artists and established video makers. The work of all these artists is highlighted throughout different itineraries which include, museums, cultural sites and unusual places. At the same time, a few hotels in Nice are turning into  places of artistic hospitality where some French and international institutions reveal projects/ programs chosen specifically for hotel rooms.
