Libre comme l'Art

Non-profit association «LILA»

Early showing with live music (cinema-concert) of "ZeMarmot" and GIMP conference at Libre Graphics Meeting (Rennes, FRANCE)

The Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) is the biggest meeting gathering graphics Free Software across the world. Born in 2006 from a proposition by the team of the Free Software GIMP the event went on every year (thanks to the support of various major projects, such as GIMP, Blender, Inkscape, Scribus)… until 2019, because of a pandemy which everybody knows about!

And so, after 2 years where the event went online, then 2 years without LGM at all, it is finally back, this time in France, Rennes, from Thursday, May 9 (French holiday) to Saturday, May 11, 2024!

Members of LILA, Aryeom and Jehan, will be there and will present 2 talks on the row:

  • Saturday, May 11 at 2PM: GIMP 3.0 and beyond

    Together with the rest of the GIMP team, with their hats of software maintainer (Jehan) and software designer and artist (Aryeom), we will present the future of GIMP, whose version 3 is getting very close!

  • Saturday, May 11, at 3PM: Early screening with live music (cinema-concert): « ZeMarmot »

    Though the project is not completely over, it will be a first complete showing of our short (a little below 10 minutes), "ZeMarmot"

    Not only this, but this screening will be supported by live music, with 3 musicians from our friend music collective, AMMD, who work with us on this movie. ORL in particular, the film score composer, will be present.
