MUVI LISBOA – INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FILM FESTIVAL (2ND EDITION)
And if music could be seen?
This was the premise from which MUVI Lisboa – International Music Film Festival was born, the only Portuguese specific music film festival, returning to São Jorge’s Theatre for its second edition from December 1st to 6th 2015.
This idea came from our dissatisfaction with the lack of importance given to music in film and we truly hope that you value it.
Around 2.000 people attended the first edition of the festival with 78 films shown, four concerts/lectures and four djsets. It was exclusively funded by FWD Coop cultural cooperative with the help of friends and your precious contribute through this crowdfunding platform.
If you feel the same, if you are dissatisfied and if you want to see music docs, biopics and music videos in this second edition of MUVI Lisboa please join the cause supporting us.
Explaining the project:
We have structured a line-up with three distinct parts:
1. National & International Competitive Sections with feature and short films, documentaries and music videos produced in 2014 and 2015
2. Non-Competitive Section curated by FWD Coop Cultural Cooperative team combining ephemeris within the music industry
3. Side Events like Exhibitions, Parties, Workshops and Showcases
Our goal is to promote and achieve the perfect synergy in order to display the best global music cinema production, ensuring the maximum involvement of the audience who enjoy music and film besides, obviously, music and film industry. This way We hope to promote the creation of thematic Portuguese motion pictures – hundreds of music films are produced each year.
The main objective is that MUVI Lisboa becomes a reference for this type of film in order to serve as a springboard to Portuguese artists, promoting their works in Portugal and internationally, through partnerships with festivals of identical philosophy.
At this time, Call For Entries is open to the registration of your movies in the Competition Section. The production of this project is already well underway with the full support of FWD Coop cultural cooperative.
Naturally the expenses are considerable and without external funding we cannot maintain the viability of the festival.
Adjust your look, the tune has changed.
Soon you will have news from us with the disclosure of some of the movies featured at the festival.
