6TH FUNCHAL INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: November, 12 – 19
From Madeira’s official Tourism Website
“Lights! Camera! Action!
This is how another edition of Funchal International Film Festival (FICF) will be set in motion in Baltazar Dias Municipal Theatre.
The key objective of the FICF is to uncover quality cinematography pieces unknown to Madeira’s public, gathered in a variety of options, from movies to documentaries. Another striking feature of this festival is the recognition of the great film careers, which allowed, in previous editions, the passage through the island of actresses, such as Claudia Cardinale and Geraldine Chaplin, in order to receive such unique honour.
This year, Terry Jones, a member of the Monty Python, the British comedy group very popular in the 70’s, will receive this honour. Dutch actor Derek De Lint, who is living in Hollywood and has participated in box office hits such as “3 men and a baby”, will preside the jury. Brazilian actor Reginaldo Faria, Portuguese actor Ricardo Pereira – soap opera heartthrobs –, Portuguese actress Ana Brito e Cunha and Portuguese musician Bernardo Sassetti, among others, will also attend the event.
