The MOTELX Award - Best Portuguese Horror Short Film is one of the highlights of the Festival and the result of one of MOTELx's main goals: the promotion, stimulation and screening of horror films made in Portugal.
The winner will receive a money prize worth €5,000
and an inspirational weekend at one of the Belver Hotels
, one of MOTELX's sponsors.
The winning short also receives the Méliès d’argent and is automatically selected for the international competition Méliès d’or for Best European Short Film, a prize awarded annually by the Méliès International Festivals Federation (melies.org
) to the best short and feature films made in Europe. The Méliès d’or is awarded every year to the best European genre feature and short film.
