International Competition 2018

On the fringes of fiction, the International Competition brings together 14 films that challenge the conventions of documentary cinema. This is the most important program of the festival: simultaneously a show of contemporary cinema produced in the last year and a state of the world, gathering established and emerging authors, Portuguese and international. The International Competition awards the Grand Prize by Vinhos Verdes for the best film; and the Companhia das Culturas/Pereira Monteiro Foundation Award for the best director among emerging authors (≤36 years).
