This edition, which will take place between November 20 and 29, will have as its central theme “A Cidade do Depois”, which will mark the conversation cycle of the Forum do Real and will be the motto for a special film program that will include works by Pedro Costa, António Campos and Chris Marker, among others.
With Rivoli as its central space, the event will keep its programming in the rooms of Passos Manuel and in the Planetarium of Porto, proposing, in parallel, an ‘online’ edition that will make available a large part of the selection in VoD (video under demand).
“A Cidade do Depois” will feed the discussion of the Forum of the Real which, this year, will have the participation of Boaventura de Sousa Santos (sociologist), Paulo Pires do Vale (philosopher), Ana Aragão (architect), Roger Koza (critic of cinema), Pascale Cassagnau (art historian) and Maria João Madeira (programmer), among others.
For the first time, and in response to the new times, marked by the covid-19 pandemic, the forum will be held in a mixed model, with online and in-person participation.
In addition to the debate, the festival will also present a restricted film program that aims to reflect some of the city’s most unique approaches through cinema and that includes, among others, “A Invenção do Amor” (1965), by António Campos, “Juventude em Marcha” (2006), by Pedro Costa, “Killer of Sheep” (1978), by Charles Burnett, “La Jetée” (1962), by Chris Marker, “Millennium Mambo” (2001), by Hou Hsiao-Hsien, and “The Exiles” (1961), by Kent Mackenzie.
The complete program of the festival will be presented on November 3, at a press conference.
Porto/Post/Doc is carried out in partnership with the Porto City Council, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Cinema and Audiovisual Institute and the patronage of the La Caixa/BPI Foundation.
