Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival


11th edition: November 17 to 26, 2017

The LEFFEST has been taking place in Portugal, in the Portuguese capital and in one of its most beautiful seaside towns, every November since 2007.

It is a very special and privileged meeting point to celebrate the relationship between cinema and the other arts and to establish a dialogue with major subjects of our time. This has made it a stimulating place for creatives of all kinds: filmmakers, artists, writers, philosophers, musicians, actors, choreographers, composers, photographers …

Alongside film screenings (competition, retrospectives, tributes and a wide range of different sections), we also organize conferences, readings, master classes, concerts, exhibitions and an international symposium.

Following a remarkable event last year, that saw the Festival welcome such extraordinary guests as Jim Jarmusch, Emir Kusturica, Monica Bellucci, Jerzy Skolimowski, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Fanny Ardant, Gérard Depardieu, Martha Argerich, Peter Handke, Adonis, among many others, we are preparing an exciting programme for 2017, running from the 17th to the 26th of November.

Welcome to the 2017 LEFFEST!
