The short film “The Girl with the Big Eyes and the Boy with the Long Legs”, by Maria Hespanhol, was the big winner of the second edition of the Curtas Awards, winning four prizes.

At the awards ceremony on Saturday night at Cinema Turim in Lisbon, “The Girl with the Big Eyes and the Boy with the Long Legs” won the prizes for best animated short, best screenplay, best soundtrack and best artistic direction

“Maria João’s Fever”, “Ana Morphose”, “Maria José Maria” and “Human Nature” were other winning short films, each of which won two Short Film Awards.

“Human Nature”, by Mónica Lima, won the awards for best director and best cinematography, by Faraz Fesharaki.

The Curtas Awards honored “Maria João’s Fever”, by Afonso and Bernardo Rapazote, for António Mortágua’s performance as best supporting actor, and Patrícia Dória and Inês Peres for best closet.

“Ana Morphose” by João Rodrigues took home the awards for best sound/sound effects, by Pedro Marinho, Bernardo Bento and Vasco Carvalho, and best visual effects, by João Rodrigues, Sandra Neves and Carlos Amaral.

“Maria José Maria” by Chico Noras won the awards for best editing, for Vera Lúcia Rita, and best characterization, for Olga José.

“Monte Clérigo” by Luís Campos was chosen as the best fiction short, while “Défilement” by Francisca Miranda was the best documentary short.

The Short Film Awards are given in partnership with the Filmin streaming platform.

The Curtas Awards were created in 2023 to recognize Portuguese short films and, at the time, organizer André Marques explained to the Lusa agency that they are generalist and transversal to film genres, open both to films that have already won awards and to others that have come out of a school context.

The jury for the second edition included Edgar Morais, Inês Moreira Santos, André Pereira, Bruno Bizarro, Hugo Azevedo, Hugo Gomes, Bernardo Freire, Carolina Serranito, Teresa Vieira, Bruno Gascon, Inês Sá Frias and Filipa Amaro.
