  1. One’s of Lisbon’s many surprises is its number of film festivals. Just this month, in addition to MOTELx, it will also have QueerLisboa which is the gay and lesbian film festival. In October it will be DocLisboa for documentary films, and after that will be the high-profile Estoril Film Festival. These are excellent opportunities to see productions you’d normally miss, getting to know the art and filmmakers from all over the world.
