Curtas Vila do Conde, which normally takes place in the month of July, will take place this year between the 3rd and 11th October, presenting a new format adapted to the new reality and consumption habits. The international festival dedicated to cinema again occupies the northern coastal city with a diversified program that will mix cinema, music and the visual arts, and which will once again have as central spaces the Municipal Theater of Vila do Conde, the Municipal Auditorium and Solar - Cinematic Art Gallery, but it will also promote a set of initiatives in an online format, thus expanding its area of action and allowing the meeting between the audience and filmmakers to also take place in a virtual environment, in a safe and close manner. In this way, sessions in VoD format will be programmed, as well as debates, interviews and masterclasses taking place online.

For the first time, Curtas also offers part of its programming online, through a VoD (Video on Demand) platform, allowing viewers and filmmakers to come together in a virtual environment as well, and a wider audience, all over the country, to have access to the films. This is especially important in the current distancing and self-isolation context, when culture asserts itself as an essential asset.
In addition, Curtas also outlined a plan to take an important part of its programming, the Portuguese Competition, to other parts of the country, with screenings in Porto, Faro, and Lisbon, which will be attended – as in Vila do Conde – by the filmmakers, thus maintaining the commitment to promote Portuguese cinema, even within a troubled context. Curtas will present the national première of the most recent films by João Rosas (Best Short Film of the 2015 Portuguese Competition), Filipa César (2015 Cidade Vila do Conde Grand Prix Winner), Carlos Conceição (Best Portuguese Medium-Length Fiction Film in 2014), Pedro Peralta (2012 Take One! Honorable Mention), Sandro Aguilar (Best European Short Film in 2005 and 2011), among others.
