MOTELX - Lisbon International Horror Film Festival

10 Sep 2024 - 16 Sep 2024
Lisboa, Portugal

MOTELX - Lisbon International Horror Film Festival, a member of the Méliès International Festivals Federations (MIFF), aims to stimulate the production of genre films, hosting three award competitions exclusively for Portuguese and European works. While also screening the best of horror produced worldwide, it rediscovers lost gems of Portugal’s cinema not only through retrospectives and a carefully curated programme but also with the launching of "Lost Room - The Filmes of Portuguese Horror (1911-2006)", a book edited with MOTELX's stamp which goes through the historic and iconic films programmed in this section throughout the years.

MOTELX counts with 3 Warm Up days that are comprised of street celebrations, exclusive performances, and open-air screenings in various locations of the city of Lisbon.

The Festival contributes yearly to educating younger audiences and the general public with selected retrospectives, workshops and masterclasses related to the genre or film production in general. There is also a space dedicated to local DJs at the MOTELX Lounge where a different DJ takes the reigns, contributing to the festival's inviting ambience.
