The 17th edition of IndieLisboa – International Film Festival, which was expected to happen between April 30 and May 10, 2020, has been postponed due to the current pandemic situation caused by COVID-19. As a result of the state of emergency we are living and following the recommendations by the portuguese public health authorities, the festival, as well as other associated events, will not take place on the planned dates. We will do everything to make the festival happens in other dates.
Some news regarding the 2020 edition of IndieLisboa had already been announced: A retrospective of the whole work of the Senegalese director Ousmane Sembène, a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Forum section of Berlinale, a focus of the Silvestre section on the work of the Franco-Senegalese director Mati Diop, and some of the highlights of the IndieMusic section which will feature key names in music such as Billie Holiday, The Rolling Stones, Charles Aznavour, and more.
The new dates will be announced soon. Meanwhile, the festival organisation asks everyone to stay home and safe. We look forward to be together to celebrate and discover the best of cinema.
