  • The Church of Almighty God (CAG)

    Our Christian film “The One Who Holds Sovereignty Over Everything” is awarded Best Experimental Film. We are very honored with the prize of the Portugal International Film Festival. The Trophy and the certificate are beautiful.
    It’s honourable to attend the film festival in Porto. The organizer Jose is very enthusiastic, the assistance and organization are perfect, with excellent communication and quick responses. Wish more success to the festival. We will continue to participate in future festivals.

    What makes the Portugal International Film Festival special is the unique familiar atmosphere the organizers Jose, Elaine and Alice provide to both award nominated filmmakers as well as just regular festival visitors. The communication with them is wonderful and I would love to come back and see how it evolves in the future.

  • Jesus Galindo

    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.
