Film Festival

Description

Every year, in September, horror cinema spreads throughout the city of Lisbon. MOTELX has been bringing to Portugal the best films produced nationally and internationally since 2007. Prestigious guests such as George A. Romero, Stuart Gordon, John Landis, Coffin Joe, Dario Argento, Tobe Hooper, Hideo Nakata, Eli Roth, Brian Yuzna, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Roger Corman, Leigh Whannell, Paco Plaza, and Ari Aster have already joined the nearly 20,000 yearly spectators.

Objective

MOTELX aims to screen the best contemporary horror films produced all around the globe, to stimulate the national production of genre cinema, and to host retrospectives and debates that will contribute to the contextualization and understanding of horror by the new generations. In order to continue promoting horror cinema in our country, we are also looking at recent genre films to distribute nationally during the year.
