Oporto Film Festival ­ Fantasporto presence in Cannes

Once again, the Oporto Film Festival ­ Fantasporto has decided to invest strongly in the promotion of the coming edition on the occasion of the 59th Cannes International Film Festival. 27 years already, Fantasporto aims, as usual, at bigger and better, and the Croisette is the right meeting place and a traditional focus for the film world.

The second time ever, Fantasporto is going to have its own booth in the Marché du Film at the Riviera Space. This is where Fantasporto will be searching for the interest of producers, distributors and directors. This is also the space to introduce to those who have never been there, the city where the festival is held - Oporto, an Unesco World Heritage City. Posters of Oporto are part of the booth as much as Fantasporto promotion. And a cocktail will be served, quite naturally, with Graham¹s Portwine. Some areas in the Croisette also receive posters advertising the 27th edition of Oporto Internacional Film Festival. The Fantasporto Cannes campaign is completed with the distribution of 20,000 postcards, leaflets, stickers and other promotional material. An ad campaign is also going to be in the pages of magazines such as the Festival Guide and the Pocket Guide of the Film Market, bringing Fantasporto closer to everybody¹s attention. The Oporto Film Festival, or Fantasporto as it is known, is already the biggest and most prestigious film event in Portugal. It specializes in fantasy and science-fiction films in the main official Competitive section. The coming event, the 27th Oporto Festival, also includes the 17th Directors Week and the Orient Express, two official Competitions, as well as Retrospective sectors. These are the traditional competitions of the festival - Fantasy Films, Directors Week, and Orient Express, for shorts and full length features, and also a Premiére sector of the latest features. in Fantasporto 2007. The 27th edition has the high patronage of the Ministry of Culture through the Portuguese Film Institute- ICAM, as well as the Oporto City Hall, all having signed protocols with the festival.

The festival takes place at the main Auditorium of the RIVOLI THEATRE which also has a smaller Auditorium to complement the competition and to screen part of the retrospectives. The PASSOS MANUEL THEATRE and the AMC- ARRABIDA 20 complete the theatres of the festival.

The SÁ DA BANDEIRA THEATRE is the ideal setting for the closing BALL OF THE VAMPIRES.

Other complements will take place at the PRAÇA D. JOÃO I. Exibitions, media shows, workshops, discussions, lectures, book and DVD launchings are also part of the paralel programme.

The press coverage is made by all important newspapers and tv networks, a unique press coverage in Portugal. 110,000 entries is the average number in past editions of Fantasporto.

Welcome to the 27th Fantasporto. February 23rd till March 3rd in Oporto, Portugal!
