At the entrance of the last weekend of the Festival, Curtas Vila do Conde maintains several focus of interest. In addition to the competition – the day keeps the strong pace of Thursday - the section From Shorts to Features returns to show a film by Yann Gonzalez in national prmiere. Also at the afternoon, is presented a performance by Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder. The highlight of the day goes to the masterpiece of Bill Morrison, "Decasia"!

The author of In Focus in the 2013 edition is Bill Morrison. After two days showing short works, this Friday presents one of his feature films: "Decasia" (21:45, Room 2), considered his magnum opus: a work of rigorous montage through the use of found footage. Another feature film of the day is "Les rencontres d'après minuit" by Yann Gonzalez (00:00, Room 1). The filmmaker is a constant presence at the festival and now presents his first feature film (one of the curiosities is the presence of Eric Cantona as an actor).

In competitions, highlights to some authors as Sergei Loznitsa, Bill Morrison, Jorge Quintela or Ico Costa. It's a great day to find amazing short films. In the early afternoon, we present a performance by Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, using 35 mm projection to create a visual happening (17:00, Room 2). Also in the afternoon  there is again the Meetings with Directors, at 16:00 in the Curtas Lounge (with João Viana, João Pedro Rodrigues, Pedro Bastos and João Nicolau). And in the morning, at 11:00 (Room 2), the Switzerland is the country's panorama.
