Photography-enthusiasts will have the chance to party to images of today’s Budapest while dancing to tunes of DJ Bootsie, or (as the only ticket program of the festival) attend premiere screenings of a documentary about the controversial American photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe as Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures is shown four times during the festival in English (with Hungarian subtitles).

A unique feature of this year’s festival is that it is literally moving out into the street of photography and showcases its mini-exhibitions and interactive installations in and around shipping containers, giving it an urban-spectacular feeling.
