Mr. Marc Abensour
Ambassador of France to Singapore
Voilah! French Festival Singapore is now firmly anchored in the Singaporean landscape, and is recognized to promote French creativity and innovation in culture, science, arts and gastronomy.
“France imagines, France innovates” is what we wish to show and share with the Singapore public during the 2017 edition of the Festival: from an exhibition on the world of the famous video game Assassin’s Creed, to a Hackathon for virtual reality movies and a symposium on the urban mutations, these are images of a high-tech France that we wish to put forward in Singapore.
We would like to extend our thanks to all our Singaporean partners, institutions, cultural and scientific centres, whose invaluable support made it possible for us to build a curated programme of more than 40 various events.
This year, we are happy to welcome the Paris Region as our main partner. It will be the occasion to promote this part of France, its richness of culture and art, which is the root of its identity, as well as its avant-garde architecture and its new high-tech incubators through the various events during these six weeks of festivity.
Voilah! will not exist without the support of our sponsors, I would therefore like to warmly thank each and every one of them for their trust and dedication to make Voilah! every year The main rendez-vous of the French culture in Singapore.
It is a pleasure for me to invite you to discover this programme. Enjoy Voilah! 2017, enjoy French innovation and imagination!
