Introduction to the festival


Film Festival Highlights

A highly renowned juri will select the best out of the films submited to us in each of our four annual editions. Those films will be screened in world famous Alfama in a most intimate event set in the oldest and more resilient cultural club in Lisbon. The entrance is free and films are subtitled in english. We have some of the newest and more relevant Portugal cinematic voices in our juri. Amongst them are directors like Berlinale short film winner Leonor Teles and Locarno special mention recipient Pedro Cabeleira. A new call for entries is open in each of the years four seasons. Cinalfama is fully open to all genres, themes and durations. We value bravery and self exposure. Some call our events "sharing sessions". Its all about intimacy: the films the venue the atmosphere - the Cinalfama mystique! Grupo Sportivo Adicense exists since 1914. World famous fado singers started their career waiting tables in this historical institution. Adicense survived and still thrives amidst the everchanging urban landscape, much like Cinalfama. This singular group of directors, that constitute our juri, will share their artistic experiences with you. By exchanging life stories they will teach and learn together with other artists. The dialogs are open to everyone with any artistic background or experience.  Sfilmmaker is our contract submission platform in China, and we look forward to your films.
