Curtas Vila do Conde will be attending the next Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, held from 1 to 9 February. Curtas Vila do Conde will share a stand at the Short Film Market along with Agência - Portuguese Short Film Agency and Guimarães 2012 - European Capital of Culture. The aim of this presence is to promote the twentieth anniversary of the festival, as well as the eight films produced in 2012 (four commissioned by the festival and four others produced under the project Campus/Estaleiro). Likewise, both the Agency and the Guimarães 2012 will promote their films on the largest world market for short film.

This presence of Curtas Vila do Conde - International Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand is one more step in the internationalization programme as a way to commemorate the twenty years of the festival.
Apart from the presence on the stand, Clermont-Ferrand will have another edition of Euroconnection, a co-production forum for which was selected a project by João Viana. Also some Portuguese films were selected for the various competitions: "Os Vivos Também Choram" by Basil da Cunha, for the international competition (the film won the award for Best Portuguese Short Film in Curtas Vila do Conde 2012), "Kali - The Little Vampire", by Regina Pessoa, for the national competition (the film is a co-production with France) and "Sizígia" by Luis Urbano, in the Labo competition.
