Meeting with organizers of the 1st Festival at MIS-SP | August 18, 1983

At the meeting held following the Festival’s closing, coordinated by Ivan Ísola (MIS-SP director), the debaters assessed the 1st edition, reviewing the results, addressing eventual issues, and making a few suggestions for the subsequent edition. They also discussed issues pertaining to cooperation between enterprises and the State. Generally speaking, the statements emphasized the positive side of the event, and the fact that it provided a new space for independent productions. Thomaz Farkas discussed the shortlisted videos, pointing out their experimental quality, freer and lighter than cinema would otherwise allow. The debate was recorded at the MIS-São Paulo studios, and the audio was ceded by the museum to this channel.
