21 - 24 JUNE 2021 / EDITION N°32

Our philosophy

Over four days, from 22-25 June 2020, PiXii Festival “Connected Edition” features an amazing exhibition of the most innovative stories and digital installations created through new convergences of documentary, culture and immersive technologies.

The event is conducted in synergy with Sunny Side of the Doc, the international marketplace for documentary and narrative experiences. PiXii Festival puts the stories first, benefits from the non-fiction industry’s expertise and has become well renowned on the digital and creative scene.

COVID-19 UPDATE

In response to the massive disruption brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, our team is rallying around to ensure that part of PiXii Festival goes ahead in an online format, featuring conferences and case studies, plus match-made meetings with buyers from national and international cultural operators. This online platform will provide opportunities to connect with others and develop potential co-production partnerships. 

To take part in this year’s Connected Edition, simply purchase an All-Access Connected Pass, which is available at a flat-rate fee of €200 excluding tax (this provides access to all Sunny Side of the Doc and PiXii Festival activities via the same platform).
