Doclisboa is known as one of those European festivals where fact and fiction are always intertwined, and the programme concept does not vary between the forms – nor does it pay much heed to running times, as all sections include pictures of all lengths.
In the International Competition, there are 14 films, out of which four will be having their world premieres in Lisbon: Christian Haardt's A New Environment: Heinrich Klotz on Architecture and New Media (Germany), Thunska Pansittivorakul's Santikhiri Sonata (Thailand/Germany), Lisa Reboulleau's Last Dream in Petra Bianca (France) and Manel Raga-Raga's Tribute to Judas (Spain).
Camille Degeye's Journey Through a Body (France), Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich's Spit on the Broom (USA), Sofia Brito's 中孚 61. The Inner Truth (Argentina), Jo Serfaty's Sun Inside (Brazil), Christophe Bisson's Noli Me Tangere [+lee también:

Out of the 11 films in the Portuguese Competition, seven will have their world premieres at Doclisboa: Tiago Siopa's Ghosts: Long Way Home, Pedro Filipe Marques' Breeding Ground, Saguenail's history with no capital letter, Inês Gil's Unskinned, Miguel de Jesus' Bird's Nest, Nevena Desivojević's Outside the Oranges Are Blooming (Portugal/Serbia) and Luís Brás' War Diaries. The Portuguese premieres of José Filipe Costa's A Pleasure, Comrades! [+lee también:

In the extremely varied New Visions section, there are 63 films through which the festival will discuss borders and limits, with titles from different eras that question the contemporary nature of cinema. These include a tribute to Barbara Hammer, retrospectives of Ghassan Salhab and Sofia Bohdanowicz, and recent arthouse hits such as Alain Cavalier's Living and Knowing You're Alive [+lee también:

Other sections include From the Earth to the Moon, Heart Beat, Cinema of Urgency, Green Years, and Rise and Fall of the Wall – The Cinema of East Germany Retrospective.
The main strand of Doclisboa's industry section, Arché, will feature eight projects at various stages of development, hailing from seven countries. The newly established RAW (Residencies, Arché, Work), in partnership with Spanish film festival Márgenes and with the support of the Ibermedia programme, includes three more projects by filmmakers who took part in a six-week itinerant programme and a four-week artistic residency in Lisbon. They will be presented and eligible, together with the Arché projects, for three awards: the Arquipélago – Contemporary Art Center Award for Best Project at the Writing and Development Stage, the RTP Award for Best Project at the Editing Stage, and the Works-in-Progress FCSH Award for Best Project.
Finally, Lisbon Docs, International Financing and Co-production Forum is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The preparatory workshops with 19 projects of all forms and lengths, from five continents, started on 13 October and will culminate in pitching sessions on 18 and 19 October. It is organised by Apordoc – Portuguese Documentary Association and EDN – European Documentary Network, with the support of the Creative Europe MEDIA programme and the ICA – Portuguese Film and Audiovisual Institute.
