This year, 2011, is the second year for the Cape Verde International Film Festival taking place on the island of Sal, October 13-16. Here is a sample from last year's festival.

The master-mind behind the festival is the talented executive producer, Suely Ramos Neves, partner at V!VA Imagens. Suely tells me that the festival is an excellent platform "to bring together Art, Cinema, and Industry; the program for 2011 promises creativity and entertainment through submitted films, special film screenings, the art of cinema workshops, cultural activities, comedy, improvised theater and much more."
You can also find more about the Film Festival on its Facebook page.
There is a lot of creative and artistic talent in "dem dere" islands ... so be there or be square!
