Enjoy a drink at the Contourbar at Mechelen Academy, the starting point of CONTOUR 7. A new interior design has been added exclusively for the Moving Image Biennale by Interieurkabinet. When the weather is fine, you can enjoy a drink on our pop-up terrace. In case of bad weather, the Contourbar offers plenty of enjoyable alternatives. The One Minute Film awards allows young people up to the age of 22 to become part of the Biennale by submitting a one minute film.


While getting lost in the City of Mechelen can actually be a rather pleasant experience, visitors to CONTOUR 7 have no reason to worry. Together with the Interactive Media Design department of the Thomas More College, a smart- phone app has been developed to guide you smoothly along the Biennale route. Download it directly at the CONTOUR 7 starting point, where there is free wifi-connection.

Download it at app.contour7.be


It takes around four hours to see all of CONTOUR 7, including walking time, leaving you half the day to discover even more of Mechelen.
