MarFilm Festival 2022

December 5, 2022

One more Festival and with great honor and esteem we thank you for this invitation. MarFilm Festival 2022, is a very specific festival, but with a technical capacity of great responsibility.

The party that connects the sea to cinema is back in the Municipality of Ílhavo with the “Mar Film Festival”, which will take place during the weekends in November in the auditorium of the Museu Marítimo de Ílhavo.

Throughout the month of November (12th and 13th, 19th and 20th, 26th and 27th), short, medium and feature films, animated fiction and documentaries, which were premiered in the last three years, were screened.

This is a festival that takes on the “Sea” in full and values the “Aesthetics” that the sea’s heritage offers to this art. It is a cultural event that follows the course that the Ílhavo Maritime Museum sets itself, through the work of sea memories and education and awareness of maritime heritage through art.

In this 5th edition there is more news. In the centenary year of the birth of António Campos, a pioneer in Portugal in the docufiction genre, we go back to 1975 for a special section, with the screening of the film Gente da Praia da Vieira and the short film A Festa, works recently digitalized by the FILMar project – Digitalization of the Cinematographic Heritage, an initiative promoted and supported by the Cinemateca Portuguesa – Museu do Cinema.
