The 1st Abreu e Lima Fantastic Cinema Exhibition takes place in four neighborhoods in the city of Abreu e Lima, in the metropolitan region of Recife, they are: Desterro, Planalto, Caetés I and Zona Rural Espaço 21. This is the first event of this nature in the city that has less than 100 thousand inhabitants according to 2022.

There will be two days of sessions in each neighborhood, and two sessions per day, the first being for children and young people, from 6pm to 7:30pm and the other from 8pm, designed for adults.

The exhibition focuses on the Fantastic genre, where a significant number of filmmakers/directors from Pernambuco debuted their careers in the seventh art. With this focus, the aim is to stimulate imagination and promote possible dreams in young people and adults in the city.

Exhibitions begin on the last weekend of June and continue for three more weekends in July.

An audience of between 200 and 300 people is expected per session day.

- Best Film Popular Jury of Abreu e Lima (composed of students, teachers from state and municipal public schools)

Submissions for films from any year are permitted, whether animation or live-action, or both in the same film, lasting up to 30 minutes.

Seeking the inclusion of an audience of people with disabilities, the curatorship will give priority to films that already have accessibility devices such as Descriptive Subtitling, Libras Window or Audio Description (having these devices does not automatically imply the selection of the film, but prioritises it in exhibition).
