A Horrifying Week in Lisbon

MOTELx, Lisbon Horror Film Festival
Lisbon is getting ready for its most horrifying week this year. From the 3rd to the 7th of September, MOTELx – Lisbon International Horror Film Festival will bring the scariest images created around the world to the screens of São Jorge Cinema right in the center of the city in Avenida da Liberdade.

It’s the second annual edition of the non-competitive film festival dedicated to the horror genre, presenting both big budget and small independent productions. In between there are also some experimental works, all with the intent to stimulate the production of these types of films and make creators and audiences interact.

The selected films may be psychological thrillers, slasher movies, ghost stories, or pure gore coming from the UK, USA, Spain, Norway, Germany, France, Brazil, and Afghanistan. There will also be short features made in Portugal, and documentaries will tell the stories behind the stories. For the complete schedule of screenings, consult the event’s website: www.motelx.org. Tickets cost €3 for those under 25 and €3.50 for everyone else.

This will be the first of a number of festivals coming up in the fall in Lisbon, of which GoLisbon will tell you about throughout the upcoming weeks.
