Urban Audiovisual Festival: Night & City

The Urban Audiovisual Festival is a thematic event that takes place in Lisbon every year. The 3rd edition has as main theme the Night and the City, and will take place on November 12-14th, 2020. Selected films are already advertised, and the organization will facilitate more information shortly. This edition was expected in March, but due to COVID-19, it had to be postponed. The event is free for everyone.

UAF is a cultural project developed by (des)Calçada Association with the academic and scientific support of CIES-IUL and IS-UP.

Scientific audio-visual production, not very considered by many disciplines, finds in the UAF a privileged scenario, both for the presentation of works and for the evaluation of the audio-visual methods applied to the study of the urban. Likewise, the UAF invites its screens to unconventional productions, made with mobile devices or exploring other forms of production of moving images. The use of new techniques is another of the main objectives of the UAF, as it aims to make known the innovations made and their multiple applications to the study of contemporary cities.

The UAF is an invitation to watch the cities. To join to a debate far beyond the screens.
