On May 15 we return to the screen of the Avenida – Café Concerto, in Aveiro, for another Port Femme Sessions – Travels.
This is a session held in partnership with CINANIMA Film Festival where we bring you very good animated films directed by women.
CINANIMA is an animation film festival organized by NASCENTE – Cooperative Society with Cultural Purposes, and by the Espinho City Hall. Ever since its first edition, back in 1976, it has been working continuously to promote this form of cinema and its authors. It has been considered a precursor of cultural decentralization in Portugal, as CINANIMA has won international recognition while not belonging to the main cultural centers of Lisbon or Porto.
