George Town Festival 2012

The George Town Festival (GTF) returns this month offering a wide array of cultural events ranging from music performances to film screenings, visual arts exhibitions, and much more. GTF is a month-long celebration of art, music, theatre, dance opera and film to commemorate George Town's inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage listing on 7 July, 2008. Each year since 2009, GTF transforms George Town into an exciting and unique platform for the arts, heritage and culture. See map of 2012 events  The unique appeal of the festival lies in its well-balanced blend of local cultural performance and events with cutting edge international performances. For centuries, Penang was renowned as an international commercial gateway. GTF was created to put George Town and Penang back on the world stage as an international boutique destination for art and culture.
