Macau (MNA) – The extension of Doclisboa, a documentary film festival, is returning to Macau from November 5 to 10.
With the collaboration of the Portuguese Institute of the Orient (IPOR), the festival will showcase a total of 14 documentaries, featuring two movies based on the works of Camilo Pessanha, a poet and writer who lived and died in the city, as well as a presentation of films made at the University of Macau.
This year’s edition will also exhibit award-winners of the Sound & Image Challenge 2017 and the EU Short-film Challenge 2017.
In a press release, the head of the IPOR was quoted as saying that the extension of the festival to Macau focuses on “an internationalization strategy of both works and national creators.”
Films will be exhibited in two venues, namely, the Consulate-General of Portugal in Macau and Cinematheque Passion.
