Curtas Vila do Conde – International Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film festivals in Portugal, reaching its 32nd edition in 2024, taking place from 13 to 21 July.

Assuming as its main objective the promotion and diffusion of cinematographic and audiovisual works, selected according to quality criteria, Curtas Vila do Conde bets on the discovery of new films and directors and also on the recognised legacy of Cinema.

Short film with animations, documentaries, fiction films, experimental films and music videos, produced in 2023 or 2024, with a maximum duration of 60 minutes (exception made, limit of less than 30 minutes, for Curtinhas – youth and children; My Generation – competitive section aimed at teenagers; Take One! – student films; and video clips), preferably with subtitles in Portuguese or English, are admitted to the various competitions.

Beginning in 2024, the festival will accept in the Portuguese Competition all short films having a majority of Portuguese production. Films made by foreign students in Portuguese higher education institutions will also be accepted for the Take One! Competition.
