Bem-vindo a Lisboa!


The westernmost continental city participating in this year's Young Audience Award is the hilly Portuguese capital Lisbon. You can best explore the city on tram #28 which runs up and down the steep hills and along the narrow streets of the centre. From São Jorge Castle or one of the other viewpoints you can see the Tagus Estuary and the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Not far from the city are the beautiful Atlantic beaches of Cascais and Estoril (north) or Costa da Caparica across the bridge. And if it happens to rain, you can visit the sharks, seahorses and the peculiar sunfish at the impressive Oceanario, the largest indoor aquarium in Europe, its main aquarium holding 5 million litres of seawater. But don't forget to try a delicios pastel de nata!

The Portuguese Film Academy

The Portuguese Film Academy (Academia Portuguesa de Cinema) dedicates its work to the promotion and development of Portuguese Cinema and its professionals. From our various initiatives, we can highlight the Sophia Awards, workshops, masterclasses and all-day events such as PASSAPORTE LISBOA and “A QUATRO MÃOS”, that contribute to the general development of the portuguese film education.
