Basurero was an Official Selection at the Festival Internacional Signes da Noite

Basurero was screened in Lisbon, Portugal during the holiday season as an Official Selection at The 18° Festival Internacional Signes da Noite, from December 27-31, 2020. It was made available online.

Since 2003, the International Festival SIGNES DE NUIT has been active in Paris and across the globe.  In recent years, the Festival was able to present about a thousand films from around 70 countries in the principal yearly festivals, as well as with about 140 programs conducted in collaboration with cultural institutions and festivals in up to 38 countries, which includes Algeria, Australia, Chile, Cuba, Hungary, Indonesia, Japan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Peru, Russia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Turkey, and the United States.

The Festival presents films that reflect new views, original imagery, and a critical approach to the crucial elements of modern and actual human existence. It is a place for cinema that expands its own boundaries, that is astonishing, different, potentially free from the pressure of tradition, ready to give itself over to unpredictable experimentation.

The festival has been transformed into a multinational one, with competition and focus programs in Berlin, Lisbon, Bangkok, Tucuman (Argentina), and Urbino (Italy).
