Porto/Post/Doc: Film & Media Festival

November 22 - 30, 2024

Porto/Post/Doc: Film & Media Festival is a film festival in Porto dedicated to "cinema of the real" and committed to showcasing new forms of cinematic expression that extend and test the boundaries of what is possible in documentary film. In addition to its already established competitive strands (the International, Cinema Falado, Transmission and Cinema Novo Competitions) dedicated to the most stimulating work being produced in contemporary cinema, the festival also includes thematic programmes, retrospectives of some of the biggest names in international cinema, screenings for children and young audiences, as well as several spaces for debate, workshops, parties and events for the film industry. Combining thought with action, Porto/Post/Doc presents itself as a space to debate current social issues and seeks, through cinema, to find new ways of thinking and envisioning the world, starting with the local – the city, the country and neighbouring regions. The festival occupies various spaces in Porto, a historic and cosmopolitan city, and home to a vibrant artistic community, from which we reimagine the "real".
