Film Ideas Contest

In developing its programme for children’s and young people’s film in the last nine editions of PLAY Festival, Tecla PLAY has noted that the amount of portuguese films directed at the 1-11 year old public is minimal.

As such, we aim to invert this paradigm by sensitising creators to the importance of forming audiences, as well as to the strong international circuit that is often unknown.

Investing therefore in the creation of a space for research and information, a sharing and training programme to promote the production of Children’s Film in Portugal as well as its international distribution.

The competition will pre-select 10 ideas that will be presented in a pitching session to a Jury composed of five independent figures representing different areas of the national film industry.

The winning idea received a prize of €2500.
