Nebulae, Doclisboa’s industry program, came to an end today after five intense days of meetings, talks, pitching sessions, films and much more. The occasion served to announce the country that will succeed Finland as the festival’s guest country: Spain. The director of Doclisboa, Miguel Ribeiro; the coordinator of Nebulae, Joana Cunha Ferreira; and the deputy director of Marketing Policies at the ICAA – Instituto de la Cinematografía y de las Artes Audiovisuales, Jara Ayucar, jointly revealed the news that promises a reinforced presence of Portugal’s neighbouring country in the 2024 edition of Doclisboa.

“We are very happy to be able to announce this partnership here with our Doclisboa colleagues and we believe it will be a great journey. Next year is especially important because we will also be celebrating 50 years of democracy in Spain and Portugal, at a particularly difficult time to talk about democracy in the world. Let’s keep making documentaries and talking about documentaries. We hope to see you all next year, with the presence of more Spanish film projects and more documentary makers. We’ll bring the sun and the ham from Spain,” promised Jara Ayucar on behalf of the ICAA

“We are very excited about the idea of building bridges with those who come to Nebulae regularly, with those who visit us for the first time, and with the wonderful talents from Spain. Thank you to the ICAA for the trust in building this project together,” added Miguel Ribeiro.
The festival runs until October 29 in the Portuguese capital, the month when the whole world fits in Lisbon.
