Mission / description Since its 1st edition in Barcelos in 2008, the ART&TUR Festival has effectively fulfilled its mission of making known to the world the best audiovisual productions in Portugal and in the world.

As a forum for sharing experiences, the ART&TUR Festival has achieved a high international recognition, thanks to the quality and quantity of films that it distinguishes annually, as well as its integration into a worldwide network of similar festivals: CIFFT (International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals) that annually elects the best tourism film worldwide, among all the films that travel the international circuit of 16 festivals.

In addition to its active participation in CIFFT, the ART&TUR Festival is developing several bilateral partnerships with similar Festivals, namely: Terres Travel Festival (Spain); Zagreb Tourfilm Festival (Croatia) Tourfilm Riga (Latvia); JWTFF (Japan); and Amorgos Tourism Film Festival (Greece).

From 2018, ART&TUR Festival rights were transferred from APTUR to Centro de Portugal Film Commission (CPFC). Associated to this change, and thanks to an agreement between the CPFC and the Regional Tourism Entity of Center of Portugal, the ART&TUR Festival will now be held in the Central Region, roaming through the various municipalities of the Center of Portugal.

The festival programme includes talks, workshops and business events for professionals throughout the world related with the industry trends. All awarded films can be watched during the days of the festival and you can meet with those who have created or commissioned them.

There are 2 different competitions for you, TOURFILM | DOC.

Worldwide entries are invited:
Advertising, Promotion Films, Animation, Corporate Communications, Documentaries, Webdocs, Video Travel Bloggers (Vlogs) TV & Web TV plus sub-categories...
