    Once I found out that my feature film, EL DERECHO DE JESUS became an Official Selection at the 2018 Portugal International Film Festival, I wanted to go and attend the festival. The festival directors, Josè Claudio Silva, Alice Maciel, Elaine Maciel and Marcelo Cabral went above and beyond to make the event a positive experience. They were professional, always upbeat and attended all my concerns, which made the festival more enjoyable. The Awards show was classy and elegant. Adding to the whole experience, I was surprised when it was announced that my film won the Best Feature Film Award. It was a happy surprise. I will never forget this incredible experience.

    I was in Porto for the second time in competition for Portugal FF 2018 and once again I was very satisfied. The merit of all the staff led by the implacable Josè Claudio Silva assisted by Marcelo Cabral, Alice and Stella Maciel. In a professional, but also fun, atmosphere, during the two days available, we could see a large part of the works selected by the jury. During the awards ceremony, the speeches by the Eliane Marcel president were very appreciated, full of energy, together with the novelty of the Q & A (thanks to which the authors answered the questions of colleagues and audience) and the direct facebook, which allowed all those unable to participate, to share with others the expectation, the explosion of joy or regret for the near victory. In short, for one evening, cinema has become a theater, where actors and spectators share emotions in the same place and at the same time.
    A perfect organization, that never disappoints, including the pleasant reception of the guesthouse O quarter direicto!
