Concept 2024

The theme of this 6th edition is: “The Role of peace for Sustainable Communities”. This year Heritales will explore sustainable communities as a way to promote global peace, bringing together documentaries and other artistic works. Over three months, more than 20 films will be available for viewing and voting online, and it will promote live sessions in various international spaces. The culmination of the festival is celebrated with an award ceremony in the last week of September. As part of the event, we are trying to organize a three-day residency for the directors of the selected works. During this period, workshops and debates will take place as well as film projections for the general public.

In this sixth edition, Heritales has partnered with the UNESCO Chair Education for Global Peace and Sustainability at the
University of Lisbon (Portugal) and we are supported by the Cultural Heritage Portugal

The award trophies will be produced by the students of the joint program of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University Nova of Lisbon and The Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon.

We invite you to participate in a great number, to submit your work please go to and share this experience with us and with filmmakers from all over the world, so please stay tuned on this website, on our Facebook and Twitter.
