Live Streaming Session


WEDNESDAY NIGHT FEVER sessions are back!

In this new period of social isolation, we want to continue to inspire you with the visions of our female filmmakers. This way, in partnership with Maus Hábitos, Saco Azul and Avenida Café-Concerto, these streaming movie nights will take place again until we can return to our favorite theaters.

For these “Wednesday nights' fever”, we share with you some of the Official Selection of the 3rd edition of Porto Femme.


A “Wednesday night fever” that gives us an impulse to create bridges and to meet virtually so we can share some films with you. We fight against this virus by creating a cinematic epidemic with the mission of making some female filmmakers known.


This session, dedicated to National Cinema and our Portuguese directors, is already the 7th and third of this 2.0 season, that will take place on March 31st at 9 pm (Portugal time) on the Facebook pages of @portofemme, @saco.azul.associacao.cultural, @mhabitos and @avenidacc


The world needs great actions and measures. We keep isolating but also assuring our purpose in small gestures and actions.

Through archives and memory exercises, the story of the obstetrician Cesina Bermudes is told.

Then I saw you. At the time you’d be about 80 years old. You had very curled hair and you were all dressed in white, leaning on a cane… do you remember?”
