Partner Festival

Ocean Coast Film Festival

Lavra, Portugal

Inspired by the success of the River Bend Film Festival, one festival staff member had the idea to create a film festival in his hometown. With the knowledge gained from collaborating with River Bend, the same incredible film experience is coming to Lavra, Portugal – with the Atlantic Ocean just a walk away!

From the Festival website:

“Our event will provide a platform for independent filmmakers to showcase their work and meet other like-minded people. This networking opportunity will hopefully inspire more film projects and productions to be made in Portugal.”


December 5 – 6, 2020

The third annual Festival goes virtual. You can watch from the comfort of your home and at NO COST!

Details as they unfold are on the Festival Facebook page.
