Trip to Sintra

Sintra it's a wonderful village just outside Lisbon that deserves a day trip.It's a World Heritage Site full of beautiful palaces and misterious gardens. I do recommend Palácio de Monserrate for its gardens and palace as well as Quinta da Regaleira for its gradens and well and symbols.
Writers and artists for many centuries chose Sintra as a place to get inspire; I'm sure you will be too ; )

DocLisboa 2010 - Film Festival 14/Oct - 24/Oct

«Travelling to doclisboa to encounter great masters of the truth has become a very pleasant autumn event.» José Manuel López · Cahiers du Cinema

«What makes a good festival? The atmosphere, which has a lot to do with the physical space and the people who receive us. The information we are given -
– the agenda, site, catalogue, the introductions of the guest directors – and of course, the programme. Taking the documentary art form seriously without pretentiousness. And daring to fight to achieve better conditions for documentary, on the national and international level. Doclisboa has all of this!» Tue Steen Müller · Filmkommentaren.dk

Organised in the second half of October by Apordoc, every year DocLisboa presents previews of the best documentaries of the latest season bringing together a series of out of competition programmes, and includes retrospectives of internationally acclaimed filmmakers.
The festival’s master classes are open to the public and free of charge. Informal get togethers with the directors stimulate dialogue between professionals and the public.
During the festival, participants can also attend and take part in the International Co production Forum, Lisbon Docs (pitching), the docbreakfasts for professionals and the daily Happy Hour, Guest meet Guest.
