Festival Venues

As an all-encompassing film celebration, FEST does not look away from the beautiful town it is lucky enough to be hosted in and, therefore, aims to be present in as much of the city as possible.

Our festival is spread across town, but all of the festival venues are maximum a 7-minute walk from all the others.

Multimeios Centre

Address: Avenida 24, nº800 Espinho

The Multimeios Centre’s name roughly translates to multi-media centre, as it functions as a cinema, a planetarium, an exhibition hub and a general event venue. It is a space designed to welcome all platforms of cultural interest, while also serving as a research and study centre in astronomy. Exhibitions, concerts, conferences, festivals and lectures compose an attractive program.

This special venue, situated in the heart of Espinho, is the main site where FEST takes place. Masterclasses, Workshops, Industry Meetings and Filmmakers Corner all take place in this creative open space, that every year in June if filled with the most creative minds in film, and always receives them accordingly.


Casino of Espinho

Address: Rua 19, 85, Espinho

Perpendicular to the 23rd Street, only 3 minutes away, you will find yourself on a pedestrian street, filled with stores on both sides. That will be 19th Street, that you can follow all the way through and get to yet another Festival venue: the Casino of Espinho.

Open all year, the Casino is the meeting point for people from various places, who feel attracted by the vast programs that the Casino offers. From their dinner and shows packages, to their restaurants, conference rooms, art gallery and game rooms, Casino de Espinho keeps everybody entertained.

All year round, it also hosts FEST – Cineclube, a cycle of Films curated by our team that are presented to Espinho’s community free of charge, and debated after each session.

During FEST week, the Casino de Espinho encompasses FESTinha, the festival’s section for the younger audience and other film screenings that compose our Film Program.
