Films financed by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation between 1970-1994.


In the 1960s, Portugal was living under a long-standing dictatorship with a very present censorship. Aside from that, audiences cared too little about most creative cinematic works to make the business profitable. Therefore, the country had a well-prepared, acknowledged and inventive workforce in a great need of artistic freedom, but virtually no place for experimental or creative cinema.
Then, from 1970 (and ending only in 1994, two decades after the old regime downfall) Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation answered filmmakers' requests. It started directing funds to the production of portuguese films, following its rich history of support in the plastic arts, theater, music and other fields.
In a few years, the works produced under Gulbenkian's financial and institutional aid were strongly acclaimed in both national and foreign press, and in specialized cinema circuits and festivals, mostly in Italy and France. Without Gulbenkian's support, portuguese 'cinema novo' wouldn't have been anything like it was.

This list contains all films produced by Gulbenkian's Portuguese Cinema Center (CPC) during those years that are on IMDB. Among the supported directors, we can find João César Monteiro, Fernando Lopes, António Reis & Margarida Cordeiro, Pedro Costa and the then already senior Manoel de Oliveira.
