About Nebulae:

Nebulae is the space for networking at Doclisboa. It is a group of activities, gatherings, opportunities and people for the advancement of the creation, production and dissemination of independent film. In 2021, Nebulae will take place in a hybrid format – with both activities online and onsite.
More information.

Nebula – a diffuse cloud of interstellar dust or gas or both, visible as luminous patches or areas of darkness depending on the way the mass absorbs or reflects incident light or emits its own light. Some nebulae (more than one nebula) come from the gas and dust thrown out by the explosion of a dying star. Other nebulae are regions where new stars are beginning to form.
