The 40 Club


A club for our 40th edition

For its 40th edition, the International Festival of Films on Art has invited around forty artists, business figures, and friends of the festival to join the Club of 40 and become ambassadors of this anniversary edition.

A club that continues to grow year after year to support Le FIFA, an organization that brings people together by opening a window onto the very essence of human beings. Discovering artists, creators, but also and above all, what lies behind classical, avant-garde or experimental artistic expressions, is a privilege, a glimpse into the deepest parts of the human mind, imagination and genius. The FIFA is now the largest festival of films on art in the world!
