Some people defend that there are only two emotions in the world: love and fear. Considering the visible effects of fear in our contemporary world, it seems imperative to counterpose it with its polar opposite. This year's edition of Frames - Portuguese Film Festival aims at redefining, rethinking and questioning the aesthetics and narratives of love. Frames Love Stories proposes a foray into the representations and dynamics of affection today.

To make love visible - in all its different shapes - is an urgent political gesture.

The admission criteria for this year’s Frames Shorts:

- The director or producer of the film is Portuguese, or the film was shot in Portugal;
- A love story of any variety is depicted in the foreground of the movie;
- It has a maximum length of 45 minutes;
- It has been produced between 2018 and 2019.
