Seasonal Screenings
and Awards

Since 2016, the Cinalfama Association has organized three regular competitive film screenings at the headquarters of Grupo Sportivo Adicense in the center of Alfama, in the months of January, April, and October.

Every year, we receive around 1500 film submissions (the best are then selected and presented) of all genres, lengths, and formats.

The public is invited to (re)discover Alfama through nights of independent cinema screenings and recover their experience of the neighborhood. The winning films from these 3 sessions will be screened at the new annual Lisbon International Film Festival.

January 2023
