Oiá is an audiovisual project performed in Cape Verde.
Our aim is to promote Cape Verdean cinematography and incentive young-spirit people to create audiovisual works.
We organize workshops all year round and every September/October S.Vicente Island holds cinema festival. We turn walls of the building in various neighborhoods of Mindelo and villages on the island into movie screens. We finish the Festival with the screeining on water in Porto Grande Bay.
Festival Oiá 2017 held one-month workshops for over 40 youngsters performed by 20 professionals, 40 movies screened and various film-makes from Cape Verde and outside – Angele Diabang (Senegal) and Ricardo Areias (Portugal) among others.
Festival Oiá travelled also to Lisbon and Poland (Cracow and Warsaw) in December 2017 were the best movies from the festival were shown.
