Monstra Festival

20 years, 20 countries, 20 sessions

20 years, 20 countries, 20 sessions

For 20 years, we’ve presented more than 15 thousand films of more than 20 thousand directors from around the world. We’ve organized training sessions to more parts of the world. We’ve been to more than a hundred portuguese cities and villages plus 151 cities in the five continents.
It is a little bit of this journey through the animation of 20 countries in Europe and America (Latin and Northern) that we will be replaying in a compact version, over the next 20 weeks.
A retrospective of some movies, directors, creations that were present in the past 19 editions of MONSTRA which represent some of the best moments of world animation cinema.
