Madeira Film Festival

The Madeira Film Festival is non – competitive. Rather than present awards MFF offers delegates the status of ‘AMBASSADOR OF THE LAURISSILVA’ thus helping to preserve and create awareness of Madeira’s endemic Laurissilva forest.


The Madeira Film Festival organisation fervently believes there is no better place in the world to stage a film festival than on the piquant Island of Madeira and there is no better place on Madeira to stage a film festival than in glorious Reid’s Palace Hotel and the Municipal Theatre in Funchal.

The crux of the Madeira Film Festival is to pay homage to the resilience of Madeira’s endemic Laurissilva Forest by screening a slate of films which may deliberate a connotation with the natural world in some fashion, films which are expansive, unsettling and profound,films which will hopefully impinge upon the viewers imagination.

One of the most effective measures that can be implemented in order to raise awareness of the Laurissilva forest and subsequently it’s preservation is through the undisputed persuasive strength of audio- visual communication. The aspiration of the Madeira Film Festival is to become one of Europe’s foremost film festivals, by sheer virtue of location there exists an inherent capacity to attain this.

Director: Aitken Pearson.

A short, unclassifiable film without dialogue  except the voiceover intro yet with a compelling narrative dependent on music & visuals. Two souls find refuge in each other after being lured by the mythic  Greek God Pan into a mysterious tree and are reborn into nature. The Great God Pan’s archetypal power lies dormant within Esmeralda and Augusto until its irresistible force beckons.
