Schedule: June 27th at 18H00

Location: Junta de Freguesia de Espinho

Lecturer: Miguel Gonçalves Mendes, Pedro Calebeira, Duarte Coimbra, Pedro Pinho and Bernardo Lopes


In the past few years, a new wave of Portuguese filmmaking has changed the landscape of Portuguese cinema dramatically. The weight of this shift has been noticed, particularly as the programming of Portuguese cinema is growing internationally across festivals.

This new wave in Portuguese cinema is characterized by a new generation of filmmakers who are engaging in a philosophically personal, visually daring, and intellectually engaged form of filmmaking.

This panel will consist of a discussion with some of these emerging filmmakers, challenging them to take an outside look at what they are achieving collectively.
