Regarded as the most emblematic film theatre in Lisbon, recipient of the Municipal Architecture Prize in 1951, Cinema São Jorge remains the
Festival’s main venue, where most of the films will be screened, as well as other actitivies like masterclasses and workshops.
The collaboration between MOTELX and the Portuguese Cinematheque - Museum of Cinema is pivotal to the origin of the Festival, having hosted in 2005 the "Zombies - The Living Dead" cycle, still when CTLX organised several activities as a film club. Throughout MOTELX's latest editions there have been special screenings in the many locations the Cinematheque holds, before, during and after the Festival.
