Tucked into the backstreets of Lisbon’s old town, Alfama, our intimate screenings take place in the city’s oldest cultural house, Grupo Sportivo Adicense. 


We host three seasonal screening editions throughout the year,
to showcase and award the best talent and films of each one.


These are free entrance and all films have English subtitles. 

Due to the current pandemic and associated restrictions, we have decided to host the next April 2021 edition online, making available a selection of the very best films of the season. Aiming to have live screenings back in the next edition. 

Check out our latest edition's list of selected films.
