Espinho’s FEST - New Directors, New Films Festival has announced the line-up for its 2020 edition. This year, the festival – known for its strong industry programme – will mainly be focusing on its film programme, spread across three different cities (Espinho, Porto and Lisbon), with an online edition of the Pitching Forum, the only industry activity that has not been postponed. In this year’s Pitching Forum, 28 projects will be competing in four different categories (fiction feature films, fiction short films, documentary feature and short films in early development, and short feature and documentary films at advanced stages of production), vying for development and co-production awards.

The Silver Lynx and National Grand Prix selection will showcase 70 short films, covering a plethora of genres from fiction and documentary to animation and experimental. Tomek Popakul’s Acid Rain (screened at festivals worldwide and possibly one of the most popular titles on the Oscars longlist), Konstantinos AntonopoulosPostcards From the End of the World (which won the Award for Best Comedy at the Aspen Festival at the beginning of the pandemic), and the Portuguese productions Erva Daninha by Guilherme Daniel, When the Light Goes Out by Tânia Prates and (In)dividual by Beatriz Bagulho are some of the highlights in this selection. These three Portuguese flicks will also be part of the National Grand Prix section, which will showcase a total of 16 shorts. The selection includes directorial debuts by several Portuguese filmmakers, but also new titles from more seasoned filmmakers: António Sequeira (winner of FEST’s 2019 National Grand Prix), with As Cartas da Minha Mãe; Miguel de Jesus (winner of Doclisboa’s 2019 MCFLY SPF Portuguese Competition Jury Award), with The Kiss; and João Monteiro, with Príncipe.

In total, FEST - New Directors, New Films Festival will screen more than 100 films in seven days. Its programme will unspool primarily in Espinho’s Centro Multimeios, with outdoor Drive-in and Mignight Sessions, while some of the competitive sections will also be showcased in Porto (at the Cinema Trindade and Reitoria da Universidade do Porto) and in Lisbon (at the Cinema Ideal).
