LEFFEST‘21 says goodbye to Lisbon and Sintra – And promises to return

On November 21, we reached the end of our programming in Lisbon and Sintra: LEFFEST’21 says farewell and promises to return. For now, we travel up North: until the 24th of this month, there will be screenings of some of the most decisive works of LEFFEST ‘21 at Cinema NOS NorteShopping. And next year, who knows what surprises our festival has in store for its attendees…

15th Edition of LEFFEST - Lisbon & Sintra Film Festival: Palmarés 2021

The winners of the 15th edition of LEFFEST have been announced.

National premiere of Pathos Ethos Logos at LEFFEST’21

It is imperative that every fifty years an object as unidentified, unaligned and unreconciled as Pathos Ethos Logos (2021) descends to Earth, in order to uncover the mutual irreducibility between words and images. Because what we have here is a cinema that makes a face at our desire to fix it in this or that sentence. A cinema too committed to the totality of the present for an “idea”, or even worse, a synopsis of it.

From November 21 to 24, LEFFEST ‘21 travels to Oporto

This year, our festival travels to the North of Portugal!

From November 21 to 24, LEFFEST arrives in Oporto for the first time, with an extension at NorteShopping. In association with Cinemas NOS, the festival’s 15th edition brings its usual excellent programming to new audiences, with some highly anticipated releases.

“Culture in prisons” – a conversation with J. M. Coetzee and Ines Branco López

The conversation is centered on the topic “Culture in prisons” and will reflect on the opportunities and challenges faced by inmates concerning the access to culture and means of artistic expression.
