Another edition of Curtas Vila do Conde is coming to thr end. Today is a day to celebrate ... and reward!

Another edition of Curtas Vila do Conde - International Film Festival ends today. The Closing Ceremony will take place at 5:30 pm, at Vila do Conde Municipal Theater, and will receive the awards of this edition.

The session will also feature the debut of "Como Fernando Pessoa Salvou Portugal" by Eugène Green. The film, which will also be shown at Locarno, is a humorous trip to the universe of Fernando Pessoa. The narrative is based on one of the most famous episodes in the publicist career of the heteronym Álvaro de Campos, author of the famous slogan "First Stranger, then Entrusted", created in 1927 for Coca-Cola at Portuguese territory. The drink would be banned in Portugal and would only be commercialized 50 years after that episode.

By the end of the evening, the festival features several sessions that will feature the award-winning films during the ceremony.
