The five projects selected to join Arché's Project Development laboratory, to be held in Porto/Post/Doc between 26 and 28 November at Zero Box Lodge, are:
CURIA CATU by Pedro Lino
THE EYES BEHOLD THE INFINITE by Rita Barbosa
MONTAÑA OU MORTE by Pela del Álamo
O ARRAIS DO MAR by Elisa Celda
DESERTO VÉRTIGO by Rocío Barbenza
The Project Development laboratory will be tutored by Spanish programmer Garbiñe Ortega and includes a public session to present the projects to film professionals on 30 November, at 2:30 p.m., at Teatro Municipal do Porto - Rivoli. Before the presentation, "Outside The Oranges Are Blooming", by Nevena Desivojevic, the winning project of 2017 edition of Arché Porto, will be screened.
Participants will also compete for a prize, an artistic residency at Companhia das Culturas, to be awarded by a jury composed by a director, Audrius Stonys, a producer, Luís Urbano, and a programmer, Nuno Lisboa.
The renewed partnership between Doclisboa and Porto/Post/Doc aims, on the one hand, to broaden and promote networks of creation, dialogue and collaboration, but also to bring the laboratory closer to contexts outside Lisbon, specifically to the Northern region of Portugal and Galicia, looking for a stronger and moving Arché, and at the same time decentralized in space and time.
