  Bruno Chatelin curator of the Best for Fests commented.

It’s a beast. A cr...
 

Part sci-fi, part thriller, part horror, and all outstanding! Excellent review of Chimera in TG Geek

user
“Chimera” is part sci-fi, part thriller, part horror, and all outstanding! "From the first few minutes of this film I immediately realized that I was in store for something entirely different. It doesn’t play like your typical monster horror movie, rather it shows us the horror of humanity and exposes some of our darker natures and obsessions, as well as highly compromised morality, all in the name of science.  Chimera is a very intelligent film, and unlike...

40th OPORTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL runs Feb 28, March 7

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.
