Born in Santiago do Cacém and currently based in London, Gonçalo Almeida won the award for Best Portuguese Horror Short Film at the 11th edition of MotelX.

Ricardo Couto, the young artist who directed “Terra Mãe”, believes that filmmaking might be just one of the tools he’ll use to satisfy his “creative urge”.

From the hundreds of independent film festivals happening every year around the world, some are more unmissable than others.

Without any particular order, these are the 10 top independent film festivals not to miss in your lifetime.
