A little film of boxXshop

Almost ready to go!!!

boxXshop was a 180 minutes Christmans market on December 1, 2011. The beginning of the film will bring you first to an exhibition in Lloyd Hotel, who supported and collaborated with us on the event. And then we will go to the construction process of boxXshop and eventually the event.
