The most recent films by Helvécio Marins Jr. and Sérgio Borges, Quentin Dupieux, Maureen Fazendeiro and Miguel Gomes will participate in the non-competitive section "From Shorts to Features" at Curtas 2021.

Vila do Conde will be the first passage in Portugal for one of the most awaited new Portuguese films, The Tsugua Diaries, by Maureen Fazendeiro and Miguel Gomes, shot last August on a property in Sintra already in the pandemic context and with the world premiere at the Fortnight of the Cannes Filmmakers.

This will be the return of the director of Our Beloved Month of August (2008) and Arabian Nights (20015), in the From Shorts to Features section, which will also feature the portuguese premiere of the new film by Brazilian Helvécio Marins Jr. Strive, Strive, Strive, co-directed with Sérgio Borges, tells  the history of Atlético Mineiro Club, from its foundation to the title won in 2014, accompanying one of the most effervescent and faithful fans in Canarinho football.

The director Quentin Dupieux (also known for his musical Mr. Oizo), one of the most unique French filmmakers today, also returns to Curtas after being the In Focus Director on the 2015 edition of the festival. In Mandibles he once again tests the limits of humor and the absurd. The film will have a commercial premiere in our country next September.

From Shorts to Features is a space dedicated to directors who have already participated in Curtas Vila do Conde and where they present their new projects, in a national premiere.
