AMPLA 2024

The best movies from the main national festivals

AMPLA returns to Culturgest for its 3rd edition with a selection of films awarded in 2023 at the main national festivals, such as Curtas Vila do Conde, IndieLisboa, MOTELX, MONSTRA, Queer Lisboa, and among others. Is, therefore, an opportunity to see what is considered the best national and international cinema today, in a transversal program that brings together short and feature-length fiction, documentary, horror, and animation films, without overlooking sessions aimed at younger audiences (also open to schools) .

To be as inclusive as possible, all films are shown with descriptive subtitles, interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language, and Audio Description, inviting everyone to enjoy the sessions. There are also some relaxed sessions that take place in a more relaxed environment. Alongside, there will be a stop motion workshop and a debate on inclusion in the cinema.

Accessibility + info

Audio description

An additional commentary aimed at people with visual impairments (blind and low vision) referring to body language, expressions and movements. It is a resource used in television, film, theatre, dance, opera, music concerts, visual arts and museum visits of all kinds. It consists of a narrator who describes during the presentation or visit, during the natural pauses in the audio, what cannot be perceived through listening. Sometimes, when absolutely necessary, the audio describer speaks during dialogues.

Portuguese Sign Language (LGP)

The language through which a large part of the deaf community in Portugal (about 30,000 people) communicates. LGP is also used by the larger community – Deaf people’s relatives  (the word capitalised refers to the person who speaks LGP), educators, teachers, technicians, among others. The expression "sign language" refers to the mother tongue of a community of Deaf people. Sign languages are natural languages, which arise and develop naturally, like spoken languages. This language is produced by movements of the hands, body and facial expressions and its reception is visual. It has its own vocabulary and grammar.

Relaxed sessions

Theatre, dance and cinema sessions or any other type of cultural offer that take place in a more relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and with more tolerant rules regarding movement and noise in the room. They can also involve small adjustments in a performance (lighting, sound, etc.) and in the reception of the public, to better adapt to their needs. They are aimed at all people and families who prefer or benefit from a more relaxed environment in a cultural space (for example, people with attention deficit, people with intellectual disabilities, people in the autism spectrum, people with sensory or communication disabilities). Relaxed sessions seek to reduce anxiety levels and make the experience more pleasant. They are a collaboration between theatres, artistic teams, parents, caregivers and companions, so that everyone can enjoy the same show.
