The next edition of Oporto International Film Festival – Fantasporto will take place at Teatro Municipal Rivoli, between February 20 and March 5, 2017. This year’s highlights are Taiwan’s action cinema and Argentina’s fantastic cinema.
The organisers have mentioned in a press note that “more than 300 long-feature films from more than 50 countries” have already been reviewed, “not to mention the impressive number of short-films of fantastic characteristics”.
The competitive section will continue this year, but this year’s focus is, in the retrospective sector, the “unseen screening in Portugal of Taiwan’s action cinema and for the less known fantastic and horror cinema from Argentina”.

In addition, in partnership the Brazilian network TV Globo, the festival will screen “unseen episodes of three series and soapoperas, from the fantastic universe, which will bring to Oporto famous names of the Brasilian television”.
