Curtas Vila do Conde – Festival Internacional de Cinema will be presenting a special program with four short films to screen at SACO – Semana del Audiovisual Contemporáneo de Oviedo, taking place from March 16th to 25th, in that Spanish city.

The screening, that will happen on March 24th, at Teatro Filarmónica, is composed by the films “Coup de Grâce”, by Salomé Lamas, “Água Mole”, by Alexandra Ramires (Xá) and Laura Gonçalves, “Fuligem”, by David Doutel and Vasco Sá and also “Coelho Mau”, by Carlos Conceição.

Miguel Dias, director of the Curtas Vila do Conde international Film Festival, and Salette Ramalho, responsible for the Portuguese Agency of Short Film, distributor of the selected short films, will present the session.

On the same day, March 24th, Curtas Vila do Conde will be hosting one of the Spanish festival parties with a DJ Set by Curtas Sound System, a duo composed by Miguel Dias and Sérgio Gomes.


Curtas Vila do Conde – International Film Festival has a strong tradition of music events beyond its core film programme, which can be explained for the festival’s desire for integration of other artistic forms related to cinema, but also for the personal music interests of its team members and programmers. In this particular case, the music proposed by Miguel Dias and Sérgio Gomes is also a good analogy of another important festival feature, the dialogue between history and cutting edge cinema, covering genres from obscure soul and deep funk classics to its electronic counterpoints such as ghetto-funk, glitch-hop and future beats.

Miguel Dias is a record collector interested in all shapes of jazz, soul, funk, latin and african music, specially from the 1960’s and 70’s. He’s also part of the Sete Magníficos, a collective of Porto DJs spinning classic 7" records.

Sérgio Gomes is a DJ since 1998. He has always shown an interest for contemporary and avant-garde electronic music. With its BREAKS lda. label he’s also a promoter of electronic music events in Portugal, and hosts a weekly radio show at RUM.
