Our aim is to screen films that might be overlooked by the international film festival circuit.
We will only charge if the film is approved and, therefore, guaranteed for public screening. So you can go ahead and submit your film for free in the "Submission for Approval" category. If the film is approved we will request a new and final submission in the "Approved and Guaranteed for Screening" category.
We are an annual event held in September at LACS - Creative Cluster in downtown Lisbon.
All filmmakers are free to represent their films in Lisbon. We will welcome you with open arms in the creative network atmosphere that our event and our unique venue provide.
We will promote the selected films on our site and social media.
Lisbon Film Rendezvous is an international showcase . No awards are bestowed since we aim to promote independent films and creative networking.
The LFR Laurel and Certificate will be send, via email, to all the screened filmmmakers.
