Since its inception, Providenza has been a place for sharing and experimenting with films, music, cinephilia, visual arts, and much more.
Starting secretly in 2016, an informal festival has been taking place every summer on the land as the celebration of an experimental and joyful residency, that is evolving every year through various forms and formats.
In 2022, as the general project became more structered, the festival became more professional and welcomed renowned filmmakers in very good screening conditions.
The 2022 edition of La simana thus hosted daily screenings in an open-air amphitheatre overlooking the bay of St Florent, as well as experimental installations based on unpublished works by guest directors.
The next edition will happen in early summer 2024.
