OBSCURA Festival is Malaysia’s premier photography festival that celebrates photography from Asia and around the globe. Each year, the festival hosts a series of exhibitions, talks, workshops, professional portfolio reviews and slide shows. Fringe events like youth photography programmes are also organised with festival partners to encourage more active participation.


Exhibiting photographers, curators, industry leaders and students fly in to George Town each year  to celebrate a quintessential and unique photography festival that is rooted in education, understanding and togetherness. OBSCURA Festival is embedded within The George Town Festival.

The fourth edition of OBSCURA Festival promises to be the most exciting one  yet. Featuring two major exhibition curations, six nights of projection installations, a photo book festival, workshops, talks and an assortment of fringe events, the 2016 festival packs a never-seen-before curation of works from all seven continents of the globe. The festival will feature over 2,500 images through the works of more than 180 photographers from around the world.
