MOTELx

Lisbon International Horror Film Festival.

About

MOTELx - Lisbon International Horror Film Festival aims to screen the best horror films produced in the last couple of years all around the globe, to stimulate the national production of genre cinema, and to host retrospectives and debates that will contribute to the contextualization and understanding of horror film by the new generations. MOTELx intends not to move away from horror, but might, occasionally, suggest films whose pertinence amidst the genre is not consensual, based on their relevance for horror, due to the language, techniques, or importance in the context of a director's retrospective. The only competitive section is the MOTELx Award - Best Portuguese Horror Short Film. Room Service is the main official section dedicated to feature films.

Sections:

  • Room Service - Feature films made after 1 January 2011,
  • MOTELx Award - Best Portuguese Horror Short Film - Portuguese productions or co-productions with a majority of Portuguese participation,
  • Lost Room - A journey into the history of Portuguese genre film,
  • Doc Horror - Documentaries about horror cinema or themes related with the genre,
  • International Shorts - Horror shorts (not produced in Portugal) made after 1 January,
  • Big Bad Wolf - Special programmes for younger audiences.

Awards

The winner of the MOTELX Award — Best European Horror Feature Film is the recipient of the Méliès d'Argent, being nominated to run for the international competition Méliès d'Or, promoted annually by the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation. 

The MOTELx Award - Best Portuguese Horror Short Film aims to stimulate the production of horror films in Portugal, by honouring a short film screened at the festival.
