Lisbon International Film Festival
OUR HOME: GRUPO SPORTIVO ADICENSE
Established in 1916, our home is one of the oldest and most autentic remaining symbol of the Alfama spirit. Cinalfama is back where it all began in 2009.
We started in 2009 with neighbourhood spirited informal screening in world famous Alfama alleys and church walls. In 2016 we picked up this spontaneous feel and turned it into an international film festival.
5000 films were submited to us and more that 2000 spectators attended in this first four Cinalfama years.
Much like the Cinalfama spirit our venue is one of the oldest and more resilient local institutions in Alfama: Grupo Sportivo Adicense.
Cinalfama is now a major cultural reference in Lisbon with the support of a number of relevant media partners like Antena 3. Its juri is composed of some of the most international renowned portuguese directors, like the Golden Bear winner Leonor Teles.
We have wide open arms for diversity and, most of all, individuality. We are looking for self exposure and bravery. It's all about intimacy: the films, the atmosphere, the venue - the Cinalfama Mystique.
The entrance is always free and the films are subtitled in english.
Take a look of what we are all about.
