Frames – Portuguese Film Festival

Welcome to the 6th edition of Frames – Portuguese Film Festival!

This year, the theme is Frames Collective. The power of a society as a whole. The energy of a community. Shared protests and fights. The beauty of a class learning together. Common beliefs and destinations. In this edition, Frames aims to redefine the idea of group through cinema: narratives and aesthetics, ways of thinking and the concept of collectivism.

So let’s celebrate the best of Portuguese cinema – together.

Frames – Portuguese Film Festival started in 2013 as an initiative from Ung FAPS, the association of young Portuguese people in Stockholm, wishing the festival could become a significant cultural gathering platform for the Portuguese community in Sweden. In 2014 the festival spread to Gothenburg and Vasteras and has gained strength in the three cities ever since.

Frames seeks to promote the most recent, original and creative content within the Portuguese cinematographic panorama, as well as introduce new and talented Portuguese filmmakers to the Swedish public. Cinema, the main focus of the event, is broadened by other cultural expressions, such as literature, debates and music events.
