Frames On Women (Göteborg)

Musikens Hus, Djurgårdsgatan 13, 414 62 Göteborg

Frames On Women is the 5th edition of Frames - Portuguese Film Festival.

This edition is, firstly, about the complex problem of the representation of women in film and, secondly, about giving fair visibility to women through Portuguese cinema. Considering the vast majority of contemporary cinematic depictions is still linked to the male gaze, this edition is all about counteracting that trend.

Keeping the focus on women, the festival will open with a fantastic concert by Luísa Sobral. With her fourth album out, various collaborations with acclaimed singers and songwriters as well as composing "Amar pelos dois", the winning song for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 performed by her brother Salvador Sobral, Luísa Sobral and her soft-spoken singing voice will be the perfect opening for the festival.

Concert tickets are still on sale. Admission to the venue for the concert is not allowed to minors under 18 years old.

Now you can book the tickets for individual film screenings! The tickets are free of charge and one can book up to a max of 2 tickets per person. The screenings will take place at Akademin Valand, Vasagatan 50, 411 37 Göteborg.
