Besides networking, the actors taking part will be involved in workshops and seminars, which include topics such as how to improve one’s showreels and self-tapes (images intended for a long-distance casting).

The first edition of Passaporte was held last year and saw actor Albano Jerónimo make a contact that led him to play a role in the fifth season of the Emmy-nominated TV series Vikings.
