This is the area of Talkfest - Music Fest Summit where ideas and experiences are passed through film form.

The screening of documentaries has a fundamental role in the way we evaluate, analyse and observe experiences and events within the cultural spectrum and the festivals and festivities context.

O Meu Campinho Dança Assim - Andanças

By Gabi Benedeti, Flávia Costa (25’ | PT | 2023)

Filmmakers Gabi and Flávia went to experience Andanças 2023 in the village of Campinho, in the municipality of Reguengos de Monsaraz. They spoke to the participants, the organisation, the volunteers and coordinators, the musicians, the trainers, children and their families, the regular visitors and the new “andantes” (festival-goers), not forgetting the locals “Campinhenses” among the various generations. The result was the story "O Meu Campinho Dança Assim", a story that tells us about a festival, a territory and two communities coming together to experience "a living energy".

Entrudo Lagarteiro

By Ricardo Pesqueira (23’ | PT | 2023)

Recovering the ancestral pagan traditions related to the change of the Seasons, the beginning of a hopeful new life cycle closely related to land cultivation is celebrated annually.

The increase in weather temperature and in hours of daylight make it the right time to plant new crops and there is an inherent joy in these circumstances.

At this time of year the eyes are set on the fruitful Spring leaving behind the rigorous and cursed Winter, personified in the figure of the Entrudo that will finally perish on that night of celebration.

His various wives are widowed and mourn his death. Playing with death, we celebrate life, making it the motto of this party.

In the village of Vilar de Amargo (Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo), the Lagarto Association organizes this festive event typical of the Portuguese rural imagination, the ephemeris of Entrudo, promoting the contact with Nature and the traditional Portuguese culture.

This film is a documentary record of the 2023 edition.
