TAP Air Portugal launches film festival

TAP Air Portugal has revealed its first onboard film festival.

Called the Altitude Film Fest, the initiative will highlight Portugal’s traditions and culture. Applications are open until June 30 2024.

Filmmakers from around the world can compete in two categories: Best Fiction Film and Best Documentary. All films must be partially shot in Portugal or focus on the country’s culture.

Winners will receive a travel grant worth €3,000 each.

Passengers can vote for their favourites, which will be available to view in October, via a survey on TAP’s IFE system.

A panel of judges from the movie industry will assess both categories before selecting 10 finalists. 

The winners will be chosen in two stages, with 40% of the final score being awarded by the festival’s official jury and 60% of the final score being determined by passengers. 

Winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony on World Cinema Day on November 5 in Lisbon.
