This year we have our very own IPFO festival tent. It is located in the centre of Olten near to Kirchgasse in the immediate vicinity of the two exhibition venues Kunstmuseum and Stadtkirche St. Martin. Here you can relax in our lounge, have a cool drink and have a bite to eat. If you are fortunate, you can also meet our keynote speakers and seminar leaders and talk to them about photography, God and the world.


Right next to the festival tent you will find the ticket box with our bookstore. Here you can buy all tickets for lectures, workshops, seminars and exhibitions. We also have an exciting assortment of photography books where you can browse or buy (with convenient postal delivery home).


Fujifilm is our main partner at IPFO. Meet FUJIFILM in person in a stylish cube, exchange ideas with the competent Fujifilm staff, experience and discover FUJIFILM photography, try it out, philosophise and live your passion with Fujifilm.

In the 75m2 area, experience the mirrorless X-Series system cameras and the mirrorless GFX-Series medium format system cameras.
