Destination: Portugal! The Poitiers Film Festival is following up on a French cultural season that gave this country top billing this year. The perfect opportunity to sample the vitality, humor, and melancholy of Portuguese cinema. The Festival invites you to travel through a selection of short and feature films revolving around the theme of summertime. Traversing the country in the torpor of the month of August, from Lisbon to the mountains, these films explore the excitement of youth, myths, and traditions in worlds that are imaginary or very real. Embark for a week on Portuguese time with Q&As, a masterclass, a reading in the original language, and a carte blanche to the “Festival Caminhos do Cinema Português de Coimbra”!

Program available in November
