The 1D edition of “Gramat Sphere” festival is organized from May 19 to 22, 2022 at the “L’Atelier” cinema in Gramat and in other places in the city. L’comic book author and director Pascal Rabaté is the guest of honor at this new festival.

“Gramat Sphere” Festival

In 2021, at the initiative of the Town Hall of Gramat, various events around the theme of animals were held in municipal structures: media library, cinema, youth space, extracurricular activities… This operation brought together multiple actors such as the Parc Animalier de Gramat, artists and cultural associations.

Building on this success, the Town Hall decided to renew this experience and chose the theme of cinema for 2022.

This theme was chosen for two reasons: the desire to revive and revitalize cinema activity, which has been undermined by the current health context; the ambition to bring together and involve actors and living forces of the territory by putting it and its inhabitants at the heart of the project (associations, traders, communities, etc.).

1er Gramat film festival, entitled “Gramat Sphère”, will therefore take place from May 19 to 22. The heart of this festival will revolve around a varied cinematographic program of which gastronomy will be the common thread. Many animations will support the film proposals throughout the weekend.
