MOTELx – Lisbon Internacional Horror Film Festival aims to stimulate the production of genre films in Portugal, screen the best of horror produced all over the world in the last couple of years, and to contribute to educating younger audiences and to help contextualize recent production trends by programming selected retrospectives.
To pursue its objectives, MOTELx programs five intense days of new and classic films of all styles and sub-genres, invites international guests, and highlights the only competitive section of the festival: the MOTELx Award – Best Portuguese Horror Short Film, which encourages every year dozens of participants to produce horror shorts to be projected at the big screen of the festival's venue.
Since its first edition in 2007, MOTELx has screened films produced all around the world, and brought to Portugal some of the living legends of horror, such as Brazilian Coffin Joe, and Americans George Romero, John Landis, Mick Garris, and Eli Roth.
In 2011 MOTELx has joined the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (EFFFF) as an adherent member.
