Curtas 2021: Cinema Revisited

6 July 2021
Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

In this year’s Cinema Revisited Sessions, we suggest a journey from the contemporary cinema to the celebration of anniversaries of decades and even centenarians.

David Lynch's Mulholland Drive, premiered 20 years ago, and is an imaginative catharsis about Hollywood as an inducer of dreams and desires, but also as a carburettor for obsessions and nightmares. Based on this delicate and singular meta-cinematic approach conceived by Lynch, Curtas prepared a program that reflects upon the mecca of cinema in the collective imagination of successive generations, named Hollywood Daydreams and Nightmares, with films such as: Sunset Boulevard, by Billy Wilder, Singin’in the Rain, by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, The Bad and the Beautiful by Vincente Minnelli and Realité, by Quentin Dupieux. Joining the celebration of Semaine de la Critique's 60th anniversary, we will present a program entitled Sweet Sixty, which brings together films by Julia Ducournau, João Paulo Miranda Maria, Bruno de Almeida, Tsai-Ming Liang and François Ozon.

Curtas 2021: Portuguese Competition

6 July 2021
Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

A total of 236 films are part of the 2021 edition of Curtas Vila do Conde, which will take place between July 16th and 25th, and suggests a transversal look at world cinema, in a program where films dilate the time, expanding temporalities and decline chronologies and ephemeris.

17 films are part of the festival's Portuguese Competition, creating a route through Portuguese contemporary cinema: collective traditions and individual stories, rurality and its landscapes, family and intimacy, with the social tensions implied and approaches that challenge any normative or gender constraints. Works by directors who return to Curtas will be present, such as Ana Moreira, Ico Costa, Leonor Noivo, Eduardo Brito or Paulo Patrício; and others who have already achieved a certain notoriety, such as Paolo Marinou-Blanco or Filipe Melo, in addition to the new discoveries of the section.
