África Mostra-se! African Culture & Film Festival

The edition 1 of África Mostra-se! African Culture & Film Festival will take place in Lisbon from 14 to 17 of June 2012.

 From 14 to 16 of June, a partnership between ISU – Instituto de Solidariedade e cooperação Universitária  and the Institut Français du Portugal, in colaboration with Cinémathèque Afrique – Institut Français, brings to the public the possibility to discover the culture and artistic diversity of the African continent.

 With particular focus on films by renowned African cinematographers, África Mostra-se! is a multicultural experience (French version) that includes music, handicraft, an African dance workshop (bookmark is necessary, contact or  962 313 048) and one hour of African tales especially catered for younger audiences (in French).

 Parallel activities will take place during the event. On Friday 15th, Arte & Manha presents a singing workshop, a concert and a DJ party, and on Saturday 16th, a percussion workshop, a panel discussion and a concert.
On Sunday 17th, The Associação de Tempos Livres de Alfama (ATLA) will present a concert and a film projection, as well as an all day long festival with handicraft and African gastronomy.
