Filmmaker, producer, set designer, essayist, writer and curator, Isaki Lacuesta is one of the most interesting and outstanding Spanish artists today. From dance to music, to painting, literature or architecture, the list of areas in which the Spaniard has been intervening is long and multiverse. With more than a handful of films and documentaries for TV, his work has been screened all over the world, in venues as referential as the MOMA, the National Gallery in Washington or the Pompidou Center in Paris.

The program selected for Curtas Vila do Conde will include short and feature films, as well as the author's first exhibition in Portugal. Taking place at Solar - Cinematic Art Gallery, it will deal with the installation dimension of Lacuesta's work, who will be present in Vila do Conde to introduce his films and participate in a conference open to journalists and the public. Isaki Lacuesta will be accompanied by Isa Campo, an unquestionable creative partner, both in the writing of most of the screenplays of his films, and in the sharing of the directing.

Curtas Vila do Conde will take place this year between October 3 and 11, presenting a new format, adapted to the new reality and consumption habits. Along with the regular event in cinemas, that will once again have as its central spaces the Municipal Theater of Vila do Conde, the Municipal Auditorium and Solar, the event will promote a set of initiatives in an online format, thus expanding its area of action and allowing the audience and the filmmakers to meet in a safe and close manner. Several sessions in VoD format are programmed, in partnership with Shift72, as well as the holding of debates, interviews and master classes in a virtual environment.

The festival programming will be revealed over the next few weeks, as well as details of ticket purchases.
