LisbonScreenings – Promoting Portuguese Cinema Workwide
3-5 May, Culturgest
Portugal Film – Portuguese Film Agency organizes again, during IndieLisboa, the Lisbon Screenings, an activity that aims to give visibility to Portuguese cinema, concentrating films, producers, directors and international decision makers in one place.
With a focus on the internationalization of Portuguese cinema, Portugal Film promotes all throughout the year several actions (presence in markets, festivals and screenings for the industry) aimed at bringing films to distributors, festivals and local exhibition networks that will show them to an international audience.
The Lisbon Screenings, which will take place at Culturgest’s Small Auditorium on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of May, will present a selection of new films, short and feature films, to directors and programmers of festivals, international buyers and distributors, invited exclusively to these screenings. During three days, professionals from the foreign film industry will be able to watch unreleased Portuguese films selected for their internationalisation potential, so that a consistent path is drawn for each film before the moment of its completion. Many of the films shown in the past had their premiere in main festivals such as Berlin, Rotterdam, Locarno and Sundance, among others. During the festival, Portugal Film also promotes meetings and networking moments between Portuguese producers, programmers, festival directors and distributors.
