Recognised with international awards at film festivals around the globe, the cinema from the Portuguese-speaking world is still mostly unknown to the general public. The film fest presents multiple works (documentaries, animations, shorts and feature films), in sessions of several films from different countries.

This 240 million people linguistic community is a thriving one, promoting over 80 film festivals and cinema awards every year, with movies mostly consumed in the respective countries.
It has been an exciting ride.
Since the first edition in Kenya, Nairobi, we created a community sharing our enthusiasm for the Portuguese speaking cinema. Shorts, features, documentaries and animation: there have been many formats for the same passion across the World, in many cities and festivals, with multiple editions.
We are always looking to expand and support people wishing to start one in their town.
