Photoville is New York City’s FREE premier photo destination, an annual photo festival and a modular venue built from repurposed shipping containers. Photoville reached a record attendance of more than 95,000 visitors in 2018. By creating a physical platform for photographers of all stripes to come together and interact, Photoville provides a unique opportunity to engage with a diverse audience — a veritable cross-section of the world’s photographic community.

Photoville is heading to Los Angeles for the first time in its seven year history!

Annenberg Space for Photography Presents Photoville LA, created and produced by United Photo Industries, will feature exhibitions in repurposed shipping containers, photo cubes, and lightboxes that will create a festival atmosphere with multiple galleries for Angelenos to explore.


Photoville LA will take place across consecutive weekends from April 26-28 and May 2-5, 2019 and will include nighttime projections, talks, workshops, family-friendly activities, and Photoville’s famous community beer garden.

Photoville NYC in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be back in September 2019. We will be accepting proposals in Spring 2019.
