Promovido pela XX Element Project – Associação Cultural, o Porto Femme “pretende exibir e divulgar o trabalho das mulheres” no mundo do cinema, “promovendo a igualdade e o empoderamento destas no universo cinematográfico”.
O evento pretende ser um “lugar de exibição e divulgação de múltiplos e diversos universos que colocam a mulher no centro”.

The theme for 2018 is Frames On Women.
An edition that brings women to the foreground.
The 5th edition of Frames – Portuguese Film Festival casts the light on women.
Frames On Women is firstly about the complex problem of the representation of women in film and, secondly, about giving fair visibility to women through Portuguese cinema. Considering the vast majority of contemporary cinematic depictions is still linked to the male gaze, it is imperative to counteract it. This edition features therefore a selection of films from women and/or about women, placing the female gender on the foreground.
