These short films were produced under the scope of the discipline Film and Documentary Image of the Degree in Photography and Visual Culture.

This 1st showcase of films by IADE students also included the screening of 2 other films that were made under the discipline Audiovisual Production and Direction in 2014, namely: "In Between" and "Focus". The screening will be followed by a conversation between Professors José Filipe Costa and Filipe Figueiredo and the directors of the films.

"It is with great pride that I see the academic work produced under this curricular unit being exhibited for the 1st time in a place as significant as the Cinemateca Portuguesa. These projects result from a serious work of the students and this presentation in the Cinemateca is like a reward for that dedication and commitment", says Professor José Filipe Costa, responsible for the subject Film and Documentary Image.

"A day in the life of a wildlife photographer" (18'50'') portrays the daily work of a photographer specialized in animal life photography, following his routines from the research, to the preparation of the material, to the choice of the best media and supports for his work of capturing images. A conversation made of words and images between the two directors of the film: João Santos and Vasco Coelho.

"Lilo" (11'35'') tells the story of Manuel Martins, who, at the age of 12, entered the world of analogue photography and never left it behind. From Huambo, the place where he was born, to Seixal, Manuel travels a path in photography that goes through various styles, from landscape to studio photography, from photojournalism to fashion. Lilo travels between past and present, between analogue and digital, between Portugal and Africa. The project is by Diogo Torres and Judite Martins.

"Vai Tuna" (11'50'') brings together an active community of over 30 students who come together with one purpose: through music and dance, to share the joy and passion for the institution that brought them together, in order to create experiences together. The film brings us closer to these young people in their activities, showing how the rehearsals work. The short film was made by Kelly Palma and Júlia Mostaert.
