CALL FOR ENTRIES 2020

 

REVISION NOTE

The 28th edition of Curtas Vila do Conde, initially scheduled for July 11-19, 2020, was postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. 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. With this decision, the deadline for the submission of films for the competitions was extended to the 30th of June (except Curtinhas, that is still the 30th of April 2020).

 

The 28th Curtas Vila do Conde – International Film Festival, taking place from 3 to 11 October 2020, announces the call for entries for new short films produced in 2019 or 2020, within the duration limit of 60 minutes, in film (35mm or 16 mm) or digital (DCP).

 

You can submit your new films in the following competitions:

 

- International (fiction, documentary and animation);

- Portuguese (Portuguese films of fiction, documentary and animation);

- Experimental (films that defy narrative and technical conventions);

- Music Videos (music videos for Portuguese bands or artists, or directed by Portuguese authors until 30 minutes);

- Curtinhas (films for kids until 30 minutes);
