The 3rd Spotlight Bucharest International Light Festival will begin on April 20, 2017. Festivals of Light
take place all over Europe. Each festival has its own unique purpose, whether to promote art, tourism, or to shine a light on a city during the darkest days of winter.
The purpose Bucharest’s Light Festival is to promote an understanding of the role light plays in the modern world. It seems today we are never without illumination, and this festival seeks to use that fact to show the beauty that light can create.
Last year the festival featured art and architectural installations from both Romanian and international artists that used light as a medium or an enhancement. Interactive exhibitions as well as light and sound shows filled the walk along Calea Victoriei. For pictures from last year’s event, check out this site.
This year expect even more beautiful light to fill the streets of Bucharest and join us to enjoy the illuminating experience!
