FILMar: from screenings for schools to a concert film with The Banksy’s

We are already going to the third day of the festival, which in this seventh edition, having the Sea as its central theme and wanting to strengthen the link of the event with the city and its stories, we present a special program of films, with 3 different sessions for the school program, developed in partnership with FILMar, as well as the Film Concert – Tides (60′ – +8 years).

Ilda Teresa de Castro and Vítor Rua form the music duo Telectu, but here they will appear with their recent project, The Banksy’s, which is situated in the universe of music that is not defined by genre and style. Rather, it proposes a sound-imagetic journey that unfolds through the unique language they have created based on their experiences as individuals and artists. Sound, ecology and music intersect on the stage of Batalha, in a show that promises to surprise children and adults alike. An atmosphere of music and video, where the sea and the old port undulate together in a fabulous rhythm. The chosen films portray a Porto full of peculiar stories, where traditions, symbols and its people mix, fixed in titles such as Port Wine, From Sun to Sun and The Shipwreck of the ‘Veronese’, films restored under the FILMar project. A dive in the past with the freshness of the present.

The film-concert will take place on January 29th, at 04:15pm, at Batalha Film Center. Tickets can be purchased at this link or at the Batalha box office.

Before the film-concert, the audience will attend the closing ceremony of the festival, where the winners of the 3 prizes will be announced: the IndieJunior Porto Grand Prize, the Impact Award of University of Porto and the Audience Award. You can learn more about the juries and awards here.
