Some famous names have also visited the festival such as Max von Sydow, Guillermo del Toro, Wim Wenders, John Hurt, Rosana Arquette, Danny Boyle, Ben Kingsley, Paul Schrader who came to introduce their films to the audience. The competitive structure remains the same- Fantasy, Directors Week, Orient Express, Fantasclassics. screenings, Q&A’s, book presentations, debates, art exhibitions, workshops. 


The program, of the latest film production usually brings many International and World Premieres which attracts to Porto many cinema and media people who want to see them first hand.  The Industry Screenings are also a means of connecting the festival with the distributors. In 2020, the festival pays a Tribute to British producer - director - distributor Julian Richards, who after working in Amblin, resumed a successful career and has played an important role as the head of Jinga Films. Also Taiwan is present as a special partner of Fantasporto.  And more to come.
