The organization of Cinanima – International Film Festival of Animation of Espinho, which from today until Sunday presents 300 films in competition and in retrospectives, canceled its face-to-face component.
The measure was announced already after those responsible for the Aveiro district event had revealed that the event would maintain some competitive sessions in person, although betting mainly on the internet, through a global ticket that, at a single price of seven euros, would allow the spectator access all the films in theaters, most of which are available at any time of the day throughout the week and can be viewed repeatedly.
