In its 14th edition, scheduled to occur between October 20 and 30, DocLisboa – the most important Portuguese festival dedicated to documentary – will have a new competition for films up to 40 minute long. The winner of such competition will be automatically pre-nominated for the Oscar in Best Documentary Short Film.

Also, DocLisboa has revealed it will collaborate with the European Film Academy in its yearly awards, by choosing candidates to the European Documentary award. Every year, DocLisboa, directed by Cíntia Gil, Davide Oberto and Tiago Afonso, will recommend three films to the European Film Academy to be competing for such nomination.
