The 28th edition of Curtas Vila do Conde, initially scheduled for July 11-19, 2020, was postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19, selecting the 3rd to the 11th of October for its realization

The uncertainty about the situation in Portugal and Europe, in the coming months, made the festival's organization decide for its postponement, selecting the 3rd to the 11th of October for its realization. Due to this change, the news about the event's programmatic content will only be released starting in June. Even though considering the exceptional nature of this situation, the festival has ensured all the institutional and private partnerships, which have already shown their total solidarity. Curtas Vila do Conde is also in solidarity with all the other events and professionals in the cultural sector affected by this pandemic. 

These are new and extraordinary times for everyone. It is important for us to start thinking about a way back, and that is why we will continue working for a new edition of the festival, even if at a different time of the year. We hope, therefore, to accompany a new beginning that also includes a return to the cinema as a meeting place, in a festival that has always been a celebration of culture and community. However, this is a moment of unity in the fulfillment of the recommendations of Health Organizations worldwide, so that we will soon be together in a film theatre.
