IndieLisboa'12: winners and the big surprises

I didn't have the chance to watch as many films as I wanted and as I had planned. It's a difficult time of the year. L (2012), Le Skylab (2012), Take Shelter (2011) (would be my second screening of this great film), For Ellen (2012),  17 Daughters (2012), Rafa (2012), Into the Abyss (2011), Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003), Whore's Glory (2012), Meet the Fokkens (2012) and several shorts are amongst those I would have like to have seen. I'll be searching for them now. This was, however, the  most interesting edition of the festival I attended to which therefore raises the stakes for next year, having the opportunity to be even greater. 

The 9th edition brought us one of the best films of 2011 (not counting with Take Shelter) and the best Portuguese film in many years.

 Azazel Jacobs (director) and Patrick Dewitt (writer), with Terri (2011).

Filipa Reis and João Guerra Miller, writers/directors, with Cat Craddle (2012).
