Spotlight on films showing Fantasporto february 28

Films from the Philippines, Egypt and Canada, European or international screenings mark the schedule of this Wednesday at the Grand Auditorium of Rivoli, with themes ranging from dramatic comedy to fantasy, two of which are candidates for awards in the official section Cinema Fantástico (CF) and the other two at the Directors' Week (SR) at the 38th Fantasporto - Porto International Film Festival.
At 15:00, the program of the Grand Auditorium opens with "Boy Intside", by the Filipino Joel Lamangan, in an international prelude, "about a transvestite who is looking for the mankind in the streets of Manila." It follows, also from the Philippines and also in international previews, "The Water Spirit" by Dan Villegas, "the story of a family break in the midst of a demonic attack," in which the protagonist, a reporter named Dennis, accidentally summons "Ilawod", the "spirit of water" that binds to his son, Ben ...

About Fantasporto

Dorminsky Mario


The Oporto International Film Festival, specializes in fantasy and science-fiction films in its Official Competitive section.
This Festival also includes the 18th New Directors Week with an Official Competition and a Retrospective section. The Festival’s director, Mário Dorminsky, is preparing, with the help of the Portuguese Film Institute, a program with Portuguese Films for the benefit of the foreign guests in Fantasporto.
The Festival runs now in 5 theatres (2,600 seats altogether ) and screens nearly new 200 feature films each year. The press coverage of the Festival is made by all the most important Portuguese newspapers, radio stations and television networks and by foreign specialized press. This allows press dossiers of about 5000 clippings every year and represents a unique media coverage in Portugal for similar cultural events.

Almost 110,000 entries, per year is the average of the Festival’s past editions.
