FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL FILMES SOBRE ARTE PORTUGAL 2019/2010

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FOR FILMS ON ART PORTUGAL 2019/2020

Dear festival friends,

as the real independent festival that we are, not financed or even supported by institutions or governmental grants,

we are free to do what we think is the best and truest approach towards our goals.

Our goals have always been: providing an atmosphere for film makers and audience that allows respect, diligence and concentration during the screenings,

and informal, comfortable, happy meetings of everybody (no exclusive events!) inbetween and after.

For this, we have followed certain rules and ideas that are needed for

that a FESTIVAL IS A FESTIVAL in its important aspects (see below) -

and not just one more event of self-presentation for glamour and fame.

We are not allowed to be together, watch, eat and talk in 2020.

We refuse to consider a virtual, immaterial, digitally formed gathering

for the following reasons that you may find below,

in a text from our latest festival catalogue.

We hope to see you again with your sound, light, smell, weight and laughter,

"to feel in tune and celebrate life" (see below),

stay confident and healthy,

Rajele Jain and the festival team
