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.

The long-term exhibition at Pimenta Palace, headquarters of the Museum of Lisbon and located on Campo Grande, provides a chronological overview of the development of the city from prehistoric times to the late 20th century. The complex also features a garden which occupies three distinct areas of the former property: the formal walled garden, the woods and two former agricultural areas which have since been converted. With the adaptation of the palace into a museum, the gardens were embellished with sculptures and other elements from the collection and, since 2010, are host to a project by artist Joana Vasconcelos which integrates ceramics designed by Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro.
