Festival start: 09 August 2024      Festival end: 17 August 2024

The festival had its first edition in 2013 and has been organized annually since then by Associação Cultural Periferias in Portugal and Gato Pardo in Spain.

The project was born from a citizen initiative, supported by the municipality of Marvão from the beginning, and grew thanks to the support of diverse sponsors and collaborators.

Meanwhile, a new step was taken with the inclusion of Valencia de Alcântara (Spain) on the Festival map, thanks to the interest and involvement of the local government, Filmoteca de Extremadura and Diputación de Cáceres.

It is the intention of the organizers to contribute to an effective cultural decentralization.

We want to make accessible goods and services traditionally concentrated in big cities and which hardly reach rural populations.

EYESIGHT



We believe that it is possible, with this strategy, to locally implement a film culture that, in the medium term, allows for the creation of a more conscious audience endowed with a plural thinking that promotes contact with art, not only as a space for leisure, but as a critical thinking platform that reflects and interacts with today's world.

The organization of the festival, with all the activities and logistics involved, constitutes a significant boost to economic activity in the most diverse areas.

We offer an opportunity for the promotion and dissemination of local products and brands. We create conditions to attract tourism flows, especially tourism that is more committed to cultural and ecological aspects.

We contribute to the local, national and international dissemination of the brand and socio-cultural identity of the municipalities of Marvão and Valencia de Alcântara.

Not

Periferias - International Film Festival of Marvão and Valencia de Alcántara is a annual open-air cinema festival that takes place during the summer and has as its stage villages and emblematic places in the Luso-Spanish border area. Since 2013, the Festival offers a programme under the cross-cutting themes of the environment, human rights, art and culture. Periferias is committed with cultural decentralisation and the creation of new audiences.

The organization of the event is participative and inclusive, taking into account the social context, history and environment. It is also a channel for the dissemination of culture in rural areas further away from the usual audio-visual production, exhibition and distribution circuits. The natural and cultural environment in which the films are presented is a distinctive feature of the festival. Each programmed session adapts to the characteristics of the space and its potential audience. Each outdoor projection is special and site-specific, to enhance the material and immaterial architectural heritage of Marvão – Portugal- and Valencia de Alcántara – Spain.
