Porto Femme is a women's film festival that aims to showcase and publicize the work of people who identify as women in the seventh art, promoting equality and empowerment in the cinematographic universe.
Cinema performed and carried out by women, on women's themes, but in the end, it's only cinema made by women for ... all genres.
These films intend to educate and inform the public about social and political issues that affect women all over the world and give voice to several groups and struggles.
The first three editions can be a prediction of the future: our first edition counted with 363 submitted films from about 42 countries; our second with 444 films from 62 different countries, and our third one with 575 submitted films from 70 countries.
Our curation aims to reflect the diversity of genres, themes and languages. PORTO FEMME is a festival with a varied and appealing offer to the public, which will include competitive sessions, exhibitions, workshops, debates, Q & A sessions, exhibitions, among others.
A prize will be awarded to the best work in each category for each competition and there may be honourable mentions. A film will also be awarded the Women's Struggles and Rights Award.
