Encounter: Nest alumni - 20 anniversary
Encounter: Inês Lima, Kiro Russo, Mina Fitzpatrick and Óscar Vincentelli
In its first two decades of existence, Nest has functioned as a seedbed for new industry talents, creating a community of alumni who later go on to develop their careers in the professional world. To celebrate this 20th anniversary, Nest will organise a meeting with some of these filmmakers who have visited our theatre in the past, and with whom a podcast will be recorded live in the Tabakalera cinema.
