Porto/Post/Doc completes 2021 programme with International Competition announcement

More than 99 films will be screened at the 2021 Porto/Post/Doc, between the 20th and 30th of November in Porto, Portugal.

In 2021, the festival returns to its normal format – with sessions in six venues of Porto. With that, the final announcement of films has closed the 2021 Port/Post/Doc programme. Amongst the final selections include the 10 films making up the International Competition. There is also the inclusion of a new documentary about Moby in the «Transmission» lineup, as well as the participants in the two cycles of conversations: the Fórum do Real, which responds to the central theme of PPD’21 – «Ideas to Postpone the End of the Worldn», and the «Call to Action», a conversation-action program that aims to involve the cinematographic and civil community around ideas and concrete actions to combat the urgent needs of our time. You will find all of the International Competition films below.

Already announced was the core program of this year’s PPD, drawing from Ailton Krenak’s book Ideas for Postponing the End of the World. This central theme will mark the two cycles of conversations proposed by the festival. The usual Fórum do Real will be divided into three themes: Earth, Community and Freedom; and will feature, among others, Álvaro Domingues, Rob Hopkins and Selma Uamusse. New this year, the Call to Action debate cycle will be guided by two independent and activist journalism platforms, Gerador e Divergente, and will feature, among others, Ailton Krenak (indigenous leader and activist), Modern Times Review’s own Truls Lie, Marc Bauder (director of Who We Were), Ana Milhazes (Lixo Zero Portugal), Elsa Cerqueira (professor distinguished with the award for Best Teacher of the Year in 2021) and Constança Carvalho Homem# (programmer of Queer Film Festival).
