The International Travel and Adventure Festival takes place each year on the last weekend of September, in the centre of Montpellier. Screenings, concerts, exhibitions, conferences, round table talks and a travel village, world bookshop and workshops liven up this festival organised by the AFIVAM association, founded by 10 volunteers who are passionate about travel.
Giving pride of place to alternative ways of travelling, this festival also celebrates adventure travel with an official film competition, where screenings are followed by discussions with the protagonists.
What A Trip! Heyme Festival features an official film competition, a fringe festival with free rein given to Ushuaïa TV, an ABM (Aventuriers du Bout du Monde association) festival and free photo exhibitions. Not forgetting the travel village on Esplanade Charles de Gaulle in Montpellier, which welcomes exhibitors, conferences, CycloMoov screenings, musical entertainment and sonic siestas, along with a travel bookshop and a series of free concerts in a festival atmosphere every evening!
