Porto Femme - International Film Festival

Porto Femme is a women's film festival.

About

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 four 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; our third with 575 submitted films from 70 countries and our fourth one with 578 submitted films from 60 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.
