Submissions for the 10th edition of MOTELX – Lisbon International Horror Film Festival close on 15 June

Between 6 and 11 September, one of the city’s most charismatic cultural events is back. With each edition, fans and enthusiasts of horror film await impatiently for the discovery of the best films of the year, emerging talents, and the most unexpected surprised. In last edition, during six intense days, more than 18,000 people filled the rooms of Cinema São Jorge and the other Festival venues. Past guests include names as George A. Romero, Stuart Gordon, John Landis, Eli Roth, Brian Yuzna, Dario Argento, Hideo Nakata, Tobe Hooper, among others.

This year, we introduce a competitive section dedicated to European feature films: MOTELX Award – Best European Horror Feature Film.

The stimulus to the production of horror film in Portugal continues to be one of the Festival’s main objectives and the MOTELX Award – Best Portuguese Horror Short Film is still the highest money award given to short films in Portugal: €5,000.
