Best things to do in Macau this month
There’s something magical about catching a film late at night. Cashing in on that unique sensation, throughout the month Macau’s Cinematheque-Passion is screening eight cult titles that didn’t find much success upon initial release. The screenings take place Friday night/Saturday morning and Saturday night/Sunday morning. This is your chance to catch titles like The Big Lebowski, Japanese cult film A Tale of Sorrow and Sadness, and John Waters’ Female Trouble.
Hopping on the bandwagon for eco-friendly designer clothes, Macao Fashion Gallery’s latest exhibition delves into the world of ethical fashion. Inviting fashion lovers and budding designers to learn more about recycling garments and sustainable practices, see how local fashion designers have combined innovative designs and applied recycled fabrics to give garments a new lease of life.
Considering the influence of Japanese culture on Macau, Taipa Village Art Space is hosting this annual festival to help boost the cultural exchange between Japan and the former Portuguese territory. Putting the spotlight on cultural diversity, expect plenty of Japanese and Macanese bands – including popular outfits like Hitoshi, Inamine Yukino, Tatsuya Iju and FutarimeNoGiant – to be rocking out.
One of the biggest cultural events all year in our sister SAR, the 32nd edition of the Macao International Music Festival boasts an impressive lineup featuring 16 programmes and 22 performances.
