2021 will mark both the 20th anniversary and the 20th edition of Imaginarius, an historic occasion for a festival that has become a reference, in Portugal and in Europe, for Street Arts, and which was built from diverse communities, bodies, and its participants.

Therefore, it is important to preserve, through a documentary film, the festival’s entire path, collecting future memories of its region, artistic community and population. It is for this purpose that the Documentary Film Call will challenge Portuguese and international audio-visual artists and documentary filmmakers to present original proposals for the making of a documentary film about Imaginarius, scheduled to premiere at the 20th edition, between 27 and 30 May.

Participation Rules
