Registrations are now open for the 26th Edition of the Caminhos do Cinema Português Festival. Between the 1st of January and the 31st of July, the works for the Caminhos Selection, Essays Selection and Other Looks may be submitted via FilmFreeway. Until May 31, all national film registrations will be free.
The Caminhos do Cinema Português Festival has been, since 1988, one of the main references in the Portuguese cinematographic panorama. Presenting itself as the only festival dedicated to Portuguese cinema in all its aspects (final projects of schools of cinema, animation, documentary, short film and feature film), it shows itself as the ultimate showcase of cinematographic works that are annually produced in Portugal.
This event is the opportunity to bring together creators and viewers in a single space for artistic interaction, a place where you can follow in the first person the evolution of the national film industry.
In its 26th edition, the festival is committed to recognizing the importance of animation cinema as an important feature of the quality of national cinematography. This bet is projected by the introduction of the Best Animation Essay Award. Check all the details in the festival regulations.
We opened the event to all Portuguese national production, providing a space for the union of the arts through cinema, which is celebrated in each of our editions.
