Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English. ATTENTION: Most of the top museums in Lisbon have closed due to the attempt to contain the Coronavirus. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until April 3 and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

This year, IndieLisboa has put together an African filmmaking retrospective focusing on the works of Ousmane Sembène, Mati Diop, and the 50th anniversary of the Berlinale Forum. Go see these masterpieces on the big screen! The final program will be revealed on April 2nd.

Here’s what the organizers say:

“Together with Cinemateca Portuguesa, IndieLisboa presents the complete retrospective of the work of the father of African cinema, Ousmane Sembène, a cinema marked by feminism, the class struggle, against the Europeanization of Senegalese culture and the brutality of colonialism. With Sembène, a journey begins from within, a counterpoint to the European vision that dominates film production. These are films that operate a filmic and historical repair, that are not content with stereotypes, do not seek aestheticization. A cinema without calculation or fear of a new language and that breathes freely.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Berlinale Forum, IndieLisboa will screen a selection that includes some of the films shown in its first edition in 1971, at the time called the International Forum of New Cinema. These were films that challenged the status quo and opened the door to new aesthetics. They were reactions to the turbulent politics of their times and, therefore, they were essential to the political phenomenon. At the time, addressing issues such as anti-colonial struggles, women’s rights and LGBTQ rights, opened up new political and cinematic roads.

In the Silvestre section, the focus will be on the Franco-Senegalese director Mati Diop, who competed with her first feature film Atlantique at the Festival de Cannes. We will show your work as a director, from the feature Atlantique to the short films Liberian Boy, Mille Soleils, Big in Vietnam and Snow Canon. Mati will be showing again at IndieLisboa the film Mille Soleills that won in 2013 the international short film competition, a tribute to the film Touki Bouki by his uncle Djibril Diop Mambéty, a renowned Senegalese filmmaker.”

This year, IndieLisboa has put together an African filmmaking retrospective focusing on the works of Ousmane Sembène, Mati Diop, and the 50th anniversary of the Berlinale Forum. Go see these masterpieces on the big screen! The final program will be revealed on April 2nd.

Here’s what the organizers say:

“Together with Cinemateca Portuguesa, IndieLisboa presents the complete retrospective of the work of the father of African cinema, Ousmane Sembène, a cinema marked by feminism, the class struggle, against the Europeanization of Senegalese culture and the brutality of colonialism. With Sembène, a journey begins from within, a counterpoint to the European vision that dominates film production. These are films that operate a filmic and historical repair, that are not content with stereotypes, do not seek aestheticization. A cinema without calculation or fear of a new language and that breathes freely.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Berlinale Forum, IndieLisboa will screen a selection that includes some of the films shown in its first edition in 1971, at the time called the International Forum of New Cinema. These were films that challenged the status quo and opened the door to new aesthetics. They were reactions to the turbulent politics of their times and, therefore, they were essential to the political phenomenon. At the time, addressing issues such as anti-colonial struggles, women’s rights and LGBTQ rights, opened up new political and cinematic roads.

In the Silvestre section, the focus will be on the Franco-Senegalese director Mati Diop, who competed with her first feature film Atlantique at the Festival de Cannes. We will show your work as a director, from the feature Atlantique to the short films Liberian Boy, Mille Soleils, Big in Vietnam and Snow Canon. Mati will be showing again at IndieLisboa the film Mille Soleills that won in 2013 the international short film competition, a tribute to the film Touki Bouki by his uncle Djibril Diop Mambéty, a renowned Senegalese filmmaker.”
