Background:

Jules Verne and Utopiales

Jules Verne, a 19th century French author, is famed for such revolutionary science-fiction novels as 'Around the World in Eighty Days' and 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.'

In all, Verne authored more than 60 books (most notably the 54 novels comprising the Voyages Extraordinaires), as well as dozens of plays, short stories and librettos. His works of imagination, and the innovations and inventions contained within, have appeared in countless forms, from motion pictures to the stage, to television.


Verne's birthplace Nantes had a profound impact on his writing.

Creativity is the key word in Nantes. It is a source of amazement and emotions, and it brings people together. Nantes is a city of art and history that inspired the imaginary world of Jules Verne.


Building on the heritage left by Jules Verne and the surrealist past of the city, the Utopiales, International Festival of Science-Fiction, held since the year 2000, is now believed to be the largest sci-fi festival in Europe.

Many thanks for the support from various parties.

A series of activities under this theme will come soon, please keep an eye for the Management and Service Center for Expats.
