As part of the celebration of its 20th anniversary, Agencia - Portuguese Short Film Agency presents the initiative "Carte Blanche to Portuguese Filmmakers", which is travelling to Portuguese film festivals, from north to south of Portugal, in the timespan of a year, with special screenings of 21st century Portuguese short film cinematography. Curtas Vila do Conde participates in the initiative with invited director João Nicolau, who will  present a Carte Blanche during the festival, held from July 6th to 14th.

 

The "Carte Blanche to the Filmmakers" is a Portuguese cinema cycle, thought to be an inverted process, by inviting the people who think and create cinema - the filmmakers - to put themselves in the role of a programmer and make a revisitation to Portuguese Cinema by conceiving a short film program.
This project, carried out by the Agencia with the participation of twenty Portuguese film festivals and the indispensable collaboration of the filmmakers who accepted the challenge, has the financial support of the Film and Audiovisual Institute and is meant to be another significant step in a set of future initiatives towards film culture.
The celebration of the 20th anniversary of Agencia will also include the publication of a book on Portuguese cinema of the 21st century, coordinated and edited by Daniel Ribas and Paulo Cunha, Portuguese cinema researchers with extensive bibliography and regular collaborators Curtas Vila do Conde. This book, scheduled to be release in October, will feature texts by Augusto Seabra, Haden Guest, Adrian Martin, Leo Goldsmith, Roger Koza, Carmen Gray, Cíntia Gil, Iván Villarmea, Tiago Baptista, Pascale Cassagnau, Olivier Cotte and Martin Pawley.
This project carried out by the Agencia, with the participation of the participating festivals and the indispensable collaboration of the filmmakers who joined the challenge, has the financial support of the Film and Audiovisual Institute and intends to be another significant step in a set of future initiatives in favor of our film culture.
