CLIT is a film festival that will debut in Portugal next October, turning audience members into treasure hunters in search of the venues where films will be screened. They get clues about the screening location through the festival's app.

The venue can be anywhere, except at a regular movie theatre, because CLIT is an acronym for Cinema em Locais Inusitados e Temporários (Cinema in Unusual and Temporary Venues).

We welcome submissions from all genres and lengths, privileging works on socially relevant issues (human rights, democracy, any of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, etc.) that make audiences think on how they can contribute in a positive way to a better world. As our director says: "If you want to change the world, do it with pleasure".
