Frames Collective is the 6th edition of Frames - Portuguese Film Festival.
Collective movements, waves, images and sounds. The power of a society as a whole. The energy of a community as an identity. The strength of a group against a system. The beauty of a class learning together. Common beliefs and destinations. Shared protests and fights. Frames Collective is about cinema as a human and political gesture. What is the potency of synergy? What links us to each other?
This edition of Frames - Portuguese Film Festival aims at, ultimately, redefining the idea of group through cinema: new narratives and aesthetics, new ways of thinking the concept of collectivism. “Fátima” (João Canijo) tells us the stories of eleven women on a pilgrimage to Fátima - a collective journey about faith. “The Nothing Factory” (Pedro Pinho) depicts a group of factory workers going on strike against a corrupt system. “Be(Longing)” (João Pedro Plácido) is about an isolated community in northern Portugal. “Childhood, Boyhood, Youth” (Rúben Gonçalves) follows dreams and hopes at the National Conservatory Dance School.
This year, for the first time, we will have an International Premiere with the film “Childhood, Boyhood, Youth”, from Rúben Gonçalves. We will also have the pleasure to have the director at our festival in Gothenburg for an interview and presentation of his film.
