There has been some annual festivals I’ve been involved in some way. First as a member of the audience, then as a participant and finally as a contributor. The NY Portuguese Short Film Festival (NYPSFF) is produced by Arte Institute since 2011. It brings you the “Portuguese culture to the big screen and showcase films with a unique Portuguese perspective. The NYPSFF offers a contemporary Portugal full of ideas and spirit while bridging audiences with different cultural background.” Today, the NYPSFF is still growing all over the world and you can be a part of it. Check their website for more info and to know more upcoming sessions.
