Estoril Film Festival’09 | Estoril, PT | 5 > 14 NOV

The Estoril Film Festival, now in its third edition, has become a mandatory reference in the landscape of international festivals and intends once again to celebrate Cinema as the true Seventh Art, not only confronting its past, present and future but also its permanent relationship to the other forms of artistic expression. It also intends to be a meeting point between the audience and the filmmakers as well as well-respected figures of the art world, creating a permanent stage for discussion, reflection, debate and above all a space where one can discover or rediscover the Cinematic Arts. We hope that through the various sections – In Competition; Out of Competition, with the presence of great international directors and actors; Retrospectives; Tributes; Master Classes; Annual Meeting of European Distributors; Meeting Point of the main European Film Schools; Rare Film-Makers; CinemArt – the artists and the cinematic arts; Cinema and Its History; Exhibits; Concerts... – we intend to give our contribution, so that Estoril will definitively become a meeting point between the audience, the film professionals, journalists and all those who wish to enjoy and enrich their connection to Cinema.
