The weekend is over, but Curtas Vila do Conde is back, this Monday, to show the best of contemporary cinema! 

In the highlights of the day, we have the start of the In Focus section that, until Sunday, will show all the films from the french director F. J. Ossang. Today we show "Dharma Guns", the last film from the director. Stan wakes up from a coma, after a serious accident, finding out the genealogists are looking for someone one like him. Instead of asking questions about the testament filliation, he submits himself to Professor Starkov's legacy and travels to Las Estrellas. Today, we will proceed with the International Competition, with sessions at 5pm, 8pm and 10.30pm, where we will keep on showing the best of international contemporary cinema. 

In today's Carte Blanche, we feature the choices from Manuela Azevendo, Rui Poças and Jorge Mourinha: "The Dam Keeper", by Robert Kondo e Diasuke "Dice” Tsutsumi; "L'Etoile de Mer", by Man Ray; and "Un Transport En Comun", by Dyana Gaye.
 
For the National Panorama, at 9.15pm, Curtas has selected some films that help to shape the national scence when it comes to shortcuts production, relevant pieces that feature trends or other horizons in portuguese filmmaking: “Triptic” by Tiago Afonso, “Semente Extreminadora” by Pedro Neves Marques and “Flores” by Jorge Jácome. ´

Before that, at 4pm, we have the first Take One! Conversation, on the subject "In Cinema You Make Friends, with Salette Ramalho (Agência da Curta Metragem) Pela del Álamo (Curtocircuito IFF) and the director Rita Barbosa (“À Noite Fazem-se Amigos”). At 6.30pm, we also have the first Take One! Session, dedicated to films from film schools. 

This Monday, we will show, at Teatro Municipal, films from the Netherlands and Poland, in the European Panorama, at 3pm and 6pm. 

At Auditório Municipal we have the free movie sessions, at 2pm, featuring films to all the family. Also at Auditório Municipal, the musical duo Pega Monstro will preform their most recent album, "Casa de Cima", at 11.30pm.
