Between February 20 and March 4, the Porto-Fantasporto International Film Festival will be showing 132 films from 35 countries, including world premieres.
Ranked among the top 10 independent festivals in the world, Fantasporto is part of the city’s cultural tradition. The 37th edition presents the best selection of fantastic and contemporary cinema in the form of long and short films, animation and experimental cinema.
The official opening will begin with The Age of Shadows by Jee-woon Kim. The world premiere will be “TheEvilWithin” (USA), the only film directed by the late Andrew Getty. Award-winning films were also selected from Cannes, Locarno, Venice and Toronto. Retrospectively, the Taiwanese Action Cinema and a selection of modern Argentine cinema are highlighted.
One of the novelties of this year will be the “Mini Me” section, dedicated to children and pre-adolescent audiences. Apart from all this, the program also includes conferences, workshops and an exhibition.
