Hello and welcome to the first post of the Ocean Coast Film Festival blog. Here we will introduce our festival and the team that’ll make it happen.
As a staff member for the River Bend Film Festival for several years in the United States, our festival director Fábio Santos always thought about creating his own film festival. With the knowledge he has gained from collaborating with River Bend, he wishes to bring the same incredible film experience to his hometown of Lavra – with the Atlantic Ocean just a walk away!
To do that, he counts with the help of his talented team who will help shape his vision and 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.
Thanks for reading our first blog post.
The OCFF team,
Fábio Santos (Festival Director)
Rodrigo Oliveira (Marketing Director)
Rita Fortuna (Logistics Director)
Inês Monteiro (Communications Director)
Sara Costa (Entertainment Director)
Fernando Fernandes (Accounting Director)
