Welcome to the 21st Curtas Vila do Conde! On the first day of the festival, we start our programme with Curtinhas (a mini-festival for kids) and two screenings of feature films in the evening: "In The Fog", by Sergei Loznita (Official Opening) and "Passion", by Brian de Palma.

The evening promises to be exciting with two feature films in national première. In the first case, also part of the Official Opening session (21:00, Room 1), it will be screened the second feature film by Sergei Loznitsa, author of the Festival (he directed a film commissioned to the 20 years of Curtas). "In The Fog" is a foray into the history of the filmmaker (the Nazi invasion in the USSR) and goes back to work the Soviet latent violence. The film was awarded at Cannes and is a major work of contemporary European cinema. Immediately afterwards (23:30, Room 1), it is presented - also in national première - the new film by Brian De Palma, "Passion", a return to form for the author with a corporate thriller starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace.

During the afternoon, there will be screened two Curtinhas sessions: the first session for "Parents and Children" (15:30) and immediately after (17:00) a session to M9. These short animated films are an excellent gateway to cinema. The little ones will love!
