Turning left from the poster banner in the previous image is this northern view up Culturgest hq for Indie Lisboa. Note another aspect of a festival’s graphic system: Pole banners, featuring this festival’s chosen animal mascot. Berlin had its bear, Locarno has its leopard and Rotterdam has its tiger–and Lisbon has its crow.
The festival fosters a childrens program alongside a notably sophisticated cinephilic main program. Here’s the lively poster art promoting the sidebar. In this way, Indie Lisboa’s inclusiveness for children exactly parallels Bafici’s own kids program, “Baficito.”
