A TOP NOTCH SELECTION
34 YEARS OF GREAT CINEMA. 34 YEARS OF A GREAT FESTIVAL
WORLD AND EUROPEAN PREMIÈRES ALONG WITH A TOP NOTCH SELECTION
CALL THE ATTENTION OF THE FILM INDUSTRY AND FOREIGN PRESS
Going now to its 34th edition, the Oporto International Film Festival - Fantasporto is a film forum of the arts, with nearly 200 films, book presentations and art and photography exhibitions at the main theatre.
It begins on the 28th February till the 9th March, introducing this year two new sections and screening many World and European Premières which will spice up the original competitions, Fantasy Films, Directors Week (general films), Orient Express (Asian Films) and Portuguese Cinema.
With lots of directors, producers, actors, guests and a very special atmosphere, Fantasporto is indeed a treat with 33 participating countries.
The first new section is Fantas Classics, to present the remastered versions of film classics such as “The Wizard of Oz” and “Gone with the Wind” which are the highlights in this edition.
The second new section is called Industry Screenings, a chance for producers and sales agents to screen whatever films they want. It´s perhaps the beginning of a small market for Fantasy Films. Who knows?
Portuguese Cinema, also presented in all the competitive sections includes an homage to a great producer, Henrique Espírito Santo.
With a welcoming team and fine weather, we hope, come to Fantasporto, one of the top film festivals in the world, happening in a city that is now considered the Best Touristic Destination of 2014 and a Unesco World Heritage Site. (www.fantasporto.com and Facebook page FANTASPORTO with 75.000 fans)
