The first edition of Fantasporto was held no sooner than 1981. Yet, this film festival has gained a skyrocketing popularity with film aficionados (meaning, with both the public and the professionals in the film industry) mostly given to the fact it covers a fairly large range of genres: science-fiction (this is the main section of the festival), experimental productions and, of course, commercial productions. Adding the fact a special section focuses on music videos, there’s no wonder the festival has attained its present reputation and popularity.

Screenings and other film-related events take place throughout Porto, cinemas included, venues which welcome the public who flocks to Porto in thousands in order to attend in person to the festival.
