It is with great sadness and profound sorrow that Curtas Vila do Conde laments the death of Vicente Pinto Abreu, yesterday, May 27th 2020. An important member of the Curtas family, and a dear friend of everyone involved in the festival, he was an integral part of its history during many editions: he was part of the Portuguese Competition Selection Committee from 2007 to 2014, and from 2015 to 2019, and the International Competition Selection Committee from 2007 to 2011 and in 2015, and the Music Videos Competition Selection Committee in 2008; he was also, since 2009, one of the most important faces of the festival in  accompanying juries and guests. Over the years, his performances as a DJ are countless and unforgettable, either in his own name or as part of the “7 Magníficos”. Able to disarm and enchant everyone with his knowledge - and passion - for cinema and music, this is an irreparable loss for our community. The festival presents our heartfelt condolences to family and friends.
