fora de campo


Frontal Shot is a film residency happening in Melgaço between July 29 and August 07, 2022, alongside MDOC - Melgaço International Documentary Film Festival. The purpose of project PLANO FRONTAL is to contribute for an audiovisual archive about the immaterial heritage of Melgaço, to provide Espaço Memória e Fronteira with audiovisual works reflecting the history of the region, to promote documentary film and the appearance of new technical and artistic teams.

Four teams consisting of four young directors, four sound technicians and four cameramen will direct, for one week, four documentaries about local themes, yet to be proposed.

Plano Frontal's main targets are senior students on their final year attending higher education courses in Audiovisuals and Cinema or that have recently completed their education. The participants will be selected through application analysis and oriented by Pedro Sena Nunes, a Director/tutor with a large professional and pedagogical experience. All work will be framed and supported by a production team and a technical team formed by Carlos Eduardo Viana, Rui Ramos, Daniel Deira, Miguel Arieira and João Gigante.

It addresses all those people willing to live through a unique cinematic experience, whose objective is to produce a documentary and to participate in the festival's activities. The organization committee will guarantee free room and board, from July 29 until August 07, to the twelve selected candidates and will provide logistic support for the teams to travel to filming locations. Each selected candidate will have to guarantee his own traveling, to and from Melgaço.
