Please come in.

About to start the 21st edition of IndieLisboa, we leave you with a navigation assistant for the festival.

For those who haven’t done it yet, installing our app is a good way to start. By having it on your cell phone, you can prepare your personal Indie calendar, buy tickets and receive notifications. You can also vote for your favorite films through this application and then access the daily vote count.

To help you get to the places, we have prepared a map with the Indie locations, duly identified, as well as the GIRA stations to encourage sustainable mobility. 

Finally, for those who don’t know where to start, here are some suggestions for scheduling the first few days.

IndieLisboa 2024 will open with I’m Not Everything I Want to Be, by Klara Tasovska. We had the presence of the director and also Kamal Aljafari, visual artist and director who is the focus of one of the retrospectives this year.

IndieLisboa Please come in.

For today, we also highlight films such as Late Night with the Devil, from the Boca do Inferno section and Mambar Pierrette, from the new Rizoma. From the Director’s Cut section, we highlight two moments that will take place at Cinemateca Portuguesa: R21 aka Restoring Solidarity and Os Homens Que Eu Tive, with a post-viewing conversation, in partnership with MUTIM, with director Tereza Trautman and director Fernanda Polacow.

Starting tomorrow, we have one session from the MFA Retrospective and two from the Kamal Aljafari Retrospective. The latter is complemented by the photographic installation “In the Museum of Days” produced by the Camargo Foundation (France) and which has a unique date on the 24th and will be on display at NAV, where the Liberdade party takes place.

In this installation, Aljafari presents 80 slides of individual or group portraits taken at the Alhambra Cinema, in Jaffa, on March 22, 1944. These portraits represent a milestone of a prosperous society that would be displaced four years later, in 1948, with the occupation of Jaffa and the gradual destruction of the city.

For the weekend, two films from the International Competition are recommended. Monisme and Malqueridas which, at the same time, remind us of a sense of unity that can exist between macro and micro, exterior and interior.

Closing Saturday night, as usual, an IndiebyNight party that forms part of an IndieMusic viewing. Na Corda Bamba can be seen at 6:30 pm at Cinema São Jorge and Lisa hosts a performance by Adriana Sá and Pedro Melo Alves at 10 pm.

Sunday is IndieDate day with All of Us Strangers, a theater premiere longed for by many and which IndieLisboa brings to fruition.

IndieJúnior’s feature film — Entre Rochas e Nuvens — portrays the life of an 8-year-old shepherd, whose friends are an alpaca and a dog, and will be a moment of ecological awareness for children and adults alike.
