FIIN’s Schedule


Download complete program

It is between November 15th and 21st that the city of Vila Real receives the 5th edition of the International Nature Image Festival (FIIN), an initiative promoted by the municipality together with numerous partners, who are associated with the event in a joint effort to promote and preserve the natural heritage and awareness of society for nature conservation, catalyzing the debate and reflection on themes with biodiversity and the environment.

The FIIN is, like nature itself, in constant mutation and adaptation, the result of the demands of each moment. Have already visited the locations from Vila Realwith the ” FIIN vai às Freguesias “,and from there it evolved into the “FIIN Itinerante”, spreading the festival’s message across the country and expanding the number of contest categories, of which the Carvalho Araújo award is an example. This year, keeping the evolutionary tradition, the FIIN prepares to cross generations, creating a session of short films on biodiversity dedicated to families (FIIN’Famílias), which will be broadcast on November 21, at the Vila Real Theater.

For this 5th edition, the Exhibitions of Contests of Photography, Drawing and Youth and the Short Film Festival, everything happening in the Vila Real Theater, where the exhibition “Entre Serras – Uma visão sobre o Património Cultural” by photographer Luís Romba, will also be on display, result of a partnership with Terra Maronesa association.
The FIIN’ALL Gala also returns, again in digital format.
