This year's edition of Frames - Portuguese Film Festival aims at redefining the idea of group through cinema: narratives and aesthetics, ways of thinking the concept of collectivism.

Frames Collective is about cinema as a human and political gesture. What is the potency of synergy? What links us to each other? Collective movements, waves, images and sounds. The power of a society as a whole. The energy of a community as an identity. The strength of a group against a system. The beauty of a class learning together. Common beliefs and destinations. Shared protests and fights.

The summary of the admission criteria is:

- The director or producer of the film is Portuguese, or the film was shot in Portugal;
- The film should have at least three protagonists, or depict, either in the foreground or background, a collective (group, community, ...);
- It has a maximum length of 45 minutes;
- It has been produced between 2016 and 2018.
