Naturfotograferna Arvika is a small group of Swedish photographers with 36 members who keep in close contact throughout the year. They are all enthusiastic nature photographers who wish to share their passion with the local community. Therefore, they organize the Arvika Fotofestival, that is open to the public, every second year. With the help of strong will, a lot of voluntary work (and sponsors of course), they manage to create an event to remember, year after year. This year the festival was arranged on 6 February and it offered an amazing line-up of speakers (including Anders Geidemark, Magnus Elander and Brutus Östling, to name but a few), excellent presentations, lots of small exhibitions and delicious food!
We gave two presentations at the festival: Iceland and Wild Laponia. Both presentations contained multimedia shows that we produced together with our friend, Hungarian composer Csabi Kalotás.
Thank you Lennart Halvarsson, Hans Flyman, Patrik Petterson, Birger Höglund, Lars Johanson and all of the other members of the club! Many thanks for working so hard to make this festival such a special experience for so many people in a small place like Arvika!
