Since the start of the festival, we have tested the many possibilities that urban space embraces, and redefined the festival expression, being a free event, oriented toward creative process and inspiration to the audiences, the city passbyer.

From being a Metro festival in the first 2 years, to the actual format where every year we experiment with new opportunities and new ways to show the festival's films.

Here some examples of how the festival has worked in reality.
