We opened the event from Juniors, to seniors, to Film Schools, publishers and booksellers, all Portuguese production turning it in true showcase of national cinema in Portugal. A showcase, which has focused on bringing the creators to the publics, focusing on interaction at all levels.
 
O festival Caminhos do Cinema Português afirmou-se nas últimas edições como o evento de referência do panorama português, sendo o único festival dedicado, na sua competição, ao cinema português em várias vertentes, desde os projectos finais de escola de cinema, passando pela animação, documentário, curta-metragem até à longa-metragem. Desde 1988 tivemos o privilégio, enquanto organização de ver e (con)viver com o melhor da produção nacional portuguesa ao longo das últimas XIX edições, mas igualmente de acompanhar a evolução de toda a indústria cinematográfica portuguesa. Abrimos o evento aos Juniores, aos Séniores, às Escolas de Cinema, às editoras e livreiros, a toda a produção portuguesa transformando-o na verdadeira montra do cinema nacional em Portugal. Uma montra, que tem apostado em aproximar os criadores dos seus públicos, apostando na interacção em todos os níveis.
