Escolha fantástica de programacao. Oportunidade para mostar fimes fora do mainstream, filmes de autor, curtas-metragens misturado com uma boa dose de conferencias e festas. Vale a pena. Mas nao, nao é melhor do que o Indie Lisboa. Diria que nos falat a aposta (real) em novos talentos (tanto dos filmes como de quem os escolhe). E vivam os festivais de cinema!
