Only a few days left for kicking off FILMES DO HOMEM International Documentary Film Festival. I'm looking forward to watching great films, meeting amazing directors and drink some wine. If you are around, do come along and visit us. All the activities are free.
My favorite picture from last year's edition. Me and Margarida Cardoso, wonderful film director and member of the jury, during the awards ceremony.
Talking about interactive documentary (as always) and sharing my experience at the National Film Board of Canada with University of Cape Verde and ISMAI - University of Maia (Portugal).
"O documentário interativo participativo enquanto arquivo fragmentado, vivo e evolutivo " is the title of my communication for the VII Meeting of the Portuguese Moving Images Association.
The presenting focuses on the digital archives we are creating in social media and I present how interactive documentary may create a context for those archives and provide them a meaningful use.
The communication is very much based in the paper I recently published at Cinergi - il Cinema e le Altre Arti that may be found here: http://www.cinergie.it/?p=6395
It is always my great pleasure returning to Viana do Castelo for the Cinema Meetings.
Such a great environment, wonderful projects, welcoming organization.
See you all next year at Viana do Castelo.
The documentary film students from ESMAD - the School of Media, Arts and Design, spent 10 days in the arts residency program, producing and directing the documentaries we developed within my class.
I'm looking forward to watching the films!
The (super) short super 8mm film Entranhas traveled to Macau, as part of the V Douro Film Festival's extension, and was screened at the Portuguese consulate general's auditorium, along with the other 10 participant shorts. The screenning was accompanied by a live music performance, with Miguel Andrade (guitar) and Paulo Pereira (saxophone).
Take a look at the work by the Macau television station. Entranhas is greatly highlighted within the piece.
Invited by FAMU - Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts, I will be in Prague for presenting my Ph.D. research on interactive documentary. Following a phenomenological approach, I will talk about audience's meaning-making in interactive documentary through concepts as "Mediation" (Vivian Sobchack) and "Chiasm" (Maurice Merleau-Ponty).
October the 24th is the premiere of my lastest (very) short-film ENTRANHAS (GUTS).
9:30 pm at Ateneu Comercial do Porto (Portugal)

I'm super excited about the invitation of Douro Film Festival for filming a (very) short-film in super 8 mm.
"Entranhas" (Guts) is a black and white, silent, 2'30'' minutes film, and addresses issues of women representation.
The film will premiere on October, the 24th, at Ateneu Comercial do Porto.
Thank you so much for the great help and effort of all the crew members.
