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 Saco Azul, Maus Hábitos 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 award-winning films in 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 is the 5th session, but the first of this 2.0 season, that will take place on January 27th 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.

People come, people go. Yet everyone is moving in the same direction. We all are sharing something that we are unaware of, creating one big picture we are unable to see.

*Every last Wednesday of each month, the Maus Hábitos screens thematic cinema cycles in which the common denominator is films directed by women.

The aim is to give visibility to the work of women in the film industry, through the projection of their works and, whenever possible, their presence in the sessions, promoting the encounter between the public and the authors.
