The festival's 4th edition takes place between the 30th of September and the 5th of October, in various places in the city of Porto, in which will be projected 135 movies, coming from more than 25 countries.
Just like the three previous editions, the Porto Femme 2021 program, beyond film sessions, provides debate sessions, workshops and initiatives exhibitions that promote the approach of themes intrinsically linked with being a woman.
It’s between the cinematographic universe and the conscience and women's fight that the Porto Femme asserts itself as a space of share, debate and creation to all film enthusiasts, from participants to visitors.
