Evening shows

Monday, September 2 to Saturday, September 7, 9.45pm at Campo Santo

In the event of bad weather, there will be no alternative venue.

The Visa pour l'Image evening shows will cover the main events of the past year, from September 2012 to August 2013. Every evening, from Monday to Saturday, the program will begin with a chronological review of these news stories, two months at a time. This is followed by reports and features on society, wars, stories that have made the news and others that have been kept quiet, plus coverage of the state of the world today. Visa pour l'Image also presents retrospectives of major events and figures in history. The Visa pour l'Image award ceremonies are held during the evening programs.
