The festival is initiated and delivered by Ffotogallery in collaboration with a wide range of local, national and international partners and supporters.

Diffusion 2019’s theme is Sound+Vision .The festival explores the relationship between sound, photography and lens-based media, and how in contemporary visual culture the transmission, presentation and reading of images are influenced by sound, and likewise how music is experienced visually as well as aurally.

Now in its fourth biennial edition, Diffusion 2019 features a month-long programme of exhibitions, interventions, screenings, performances, events and celebrations in both physical and virtual spaces and places.
