The dates

The 16th edition of Quais du Polar will take place from April 3 to 5, 2020.

An opportunity to shed the light on “the other Americas”, the diversity of American peoples, the minorities sometimes forgotten or misunderstood, the linguistic enclaves, the various social crisis, and the the forgotten ones of the American dream.

The gastronomy will also be a big part of this event, in connection with the opening of ” la Cité de la Gastronomie” in Lyon.

As always, the festival will resonate through musical, cinematographic and multidisciplinary projects.
