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.
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.
