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.
