In the third edition, CineCidade opens the door to Sport. From football to water jumping, the long and short films that will pass through the screen of the Garden of the Pimenta Palace evoke larger figures like Ayrton Senna and moments of history like the Olympic Games of 1936.
The theme of this third session is motoring.

The man and the machine. Man and nature. When everything melts, something emerges. A strange sound of the future heralds a new world. Filmed at the Algarve International Autodromo Portimão during the European Le Mans Series, the film seeks a link between a nighttime racing environment and a restful daytime environment.
