ART & TUR – International Tourism Film Festival
The ART&TUR Festival has achieved a high international recognition, thanks to the quality and quantity of films that it distinguishes annually, as well as its integration in a worldwide network of similar festivals: the CIFFT (International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals) that annually elects the best tourism film worldwide, among all the films that travel the international circuit of 14 festivals.
Since 2018, the rights of ART&TUR have been transferred from APTUR to the Centre de Portugal Film Commission (CPFC).Associated with this change, and thanks to an agreement between the CPFC and the ERT Centro de Portugal, the ART&TUR Festival will henceforth be held in the Central Region, with an itinerant nature touring the various municipalities of Central Portugal.
