The theme of this fourth edition is: “Education, diversity and community”. This year Heritales  will bring together films, documentaries and other artistic works. It will explore cultural diversity and education as ways to promote the sustainability of cultures and places, communities and ecosystems.. Over the course of three months, more than 20 films will be available for viewing and voting on-line, and it will promote live sessions in various international spaces. The culmination of the festival is celebrated with an award ceremony in Lisbon in the last week of September. As part of the event, a three-day residency will be organized for the directors of the selected works. During this period, workshops and debates will take place as well as films projections for the general public.

In this fourth edition, Heritales has partnered with the UNESCO Chair in Education, Citizenship and Cultural Diversity at the Lusófona University of Lisbon which will award the prizes made by the student of the joint program of the Faculty of Science and Tecnology of the University Nova of Lisbon and The Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon.

Finally Heritales has partnered once again with the General-Directorate for Cultural Heritage Portugal (DGPC), which has offered the site for the award ceremony.

We invite you to participate in a great number 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.
