FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL FILMES SOBRE ARTE PORTUGAL 2019/2010

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FOR FILMS ON ART PORTUGAL 2019/2020

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 2019/2020
from February 14th to May 20th, 2019!

Dear festival friends,

in 2018 we have celebrated 10 years of existence.
Those of you who have ever attended our festival,
and those who have become true fans and regular participants
will remember many inspirations and uplifting encounters
- beside the laughters and the creative atmosphere that we always tried to create.
Our festival has always intended to bring film makers, artists and audience together.
We made the film sessions in one theatre, offered drinks and food
and communicated the spaces where to meet when the projections of the day had passed.
Obviously, such a festival will not achieve 5000 spectators during its 9 sessions
- but this number is required to be regarded as a "film festival" and admitted to apply for official support.

Well, that means: no governmental or institutional support for us ever possible.

But we don't give up - the festival's idea is too important, it has inspired already so many persons for other possible directions in life, for resistance, hope, positive thinking, creativity and more.
So we won't give up but will reduce the amount of resources that are needed to host an international film competition.

For now, the festival with its film competition will happen every two years,
but - in order to stay tuned and discussed - during the year without the competition,
we will organize film screenings ("sneak-previews") for a smaller audience in a half-official art loft.
These film events will present films that have been submitted to our festival
(ofcourse in agreement with the film makers).
The films are selected ALSO for the coming festival.
We will charge for tickets as fund raising for the next festival issue
- which will - as always - be almost free of entrance fees.
Ofcourse, this idea can only be realized if the film makers permit
that their films are presented in this half-public space to an exclusive audience
before the very festival is taking place.
We will always inform the film maker in advance about the selection for our special screening events
- maybe the one or the other could even attend!

Our festival now would like to open the new

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 2019/2020
from February 14th to May 20th, 2019!


We are very much looking forward to receive your great
films on art and artists!

With our respect and kind regards,

Rajele Jain & festival team
