The contest aims to stimulate in a dynamic and creative way the production of short films that celebrate the heritage associated with Wine and Vineyards in the counties concerned, taking into account their cultural context and the experience of the local community.
Of the projects admitted to the competition, one will be selected, which will have financial, logistical and technical support. In addition to the organizing municipalities, partnerships were established with associations, universities and film festivals, creating a diffusion and dissemination support that promotes consolidation and recognition of it. Each of the partner entities – Universidade Lusófona / Department of Cinema and Media Arts; INDIE Lisboa – Cultural Association; BANG AWARDS – Nau Identidade; Académico de Torres Vedras – Cultural Association – will have different competences according to its nature and its possible surcharges for the contest.
Every year a new project will be supported, from among the three categories covered by the present standards – short fiction, documentary and animation – the selection of the project being the strict competence of the competition jury.
