Organized by A Tarumba - Teatro de Marionetas, the 12th edition of the International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms - FIMFA Lx is taking place in Lisbon until the 20th of May, with extended activities in the cities of Guarda (Teatro Municipal da Guarda)  and Montemor-o-Novo (O Espaço do Tempo)

FIMFA Lx is regarded as one of the most important festivals of puppetry and theatre in Portugal, presenting a programme that goes from the work of the most traditional puppet companies to the use of recent technologies, and where elemental techniques together with experimental and contemporary performance, offer a broad experience to the viewer.

The 2012 edition of the Festival  is taking place at the Museu da Marioneta, Teatro Maria Matos, Teatro São Luiz, Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, Centro Cultural de Belém, Galeria Boavista, CAMA - Centro de Artes da Marioneta and through the streets of Lisbon, featuring the work of 20 companies and creators from countries such as Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom.

Other activities such as street and short forms shows, film documentary, videos, an intimate concert with Yael Rasooly, and exhibition featuring the puppets from the Tarumba company, a book fair related to theatre, puppetry and animated forms, and informal meetings where creators and puppeteers are invited to talk about their work and creative process, complement the FIMFA Lx12 - International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms.
