"Anyhow, Anyway" directed by Catarina Romano is selected for the International Competition in Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.

The short film “Anyhow, Anyway”, by Catarina Romano is selected for the International Competition at the 43rd edition of Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, which takes place from January 29 to February 6, 2021, in France.


"Anyhow, Anyway" is about a woman who is confined to her home. She is unemployed, as if exiled from the opportunities of her time. She goes through cycles of precarity, ever faster, ever closer, encapsulating her like the ripple of a stone in a waterhole. Waves come to meet her, repeating themselves, besieging her.
This film, produced by AIM - Animation Studios and distributed by Agência - Portuguese Short Film Agency, was selected, in October, for the National Competition of Curtas Vila do Conde.


Clermont-Ferrand is one of the most important festivals in Europe, dedicated to short films. With regard to the presence of professionals in the field, it is the second largest festival in France, preceded only by Cannes Film Festival. In the last edition, more than 172,500 entries were registered and 3600 professionals participated in the festival.


According to the festival organization, in the present edition, there were almost 7000 short film submissions and only 77 were selected. "Anyhow, Anyway" is the only Portuguese film in the International Competition.
