CULTIVATING NEW ART

We are on the cutting edge of Light art in North America, and the world is ready to join us. instanThis festival is unique because it showcases an international video projection mapping competition, which features some of the best and brightest designers in the industry. The primary focus of the festival is projection mapping, but it also draws inspiration from lighting art across cinema, photography, theater, sculpture, and lighting design
The international light art community recognized the BOREALIS Festival of Light after our first year as an international, cutting edge event that showcased innovation and creativity. This recognition turned into the BOREALIS Festival of Light becoming a gateway for artists to compete in the iMapp Festival in Bucharest Romania for the world’s largest projection mapping competition.
