Born in 2015 from the urge to create a space of support for independent cinema and dedicated entirely to its creative and film construction process, Arché reaffirms its goals in this second edition. Considering the film practise as a profound, singular and personal journey, promoting the dialogue in between the different structures of development and promotion of a film and promoting new collaboration and co-production networks. In another edition, Arché will host Portuguese and Spanish projects. This year, with the support of Swiss Films, Arché will also open the door to Swiss projects. The collaboration with Spanish film festival Márgenes was renewed. This will give the opportunity to one of Arché’s Portuguese projects to participate in the MRG/Work, the laboratory created in 2015 in the context of this festival. The selected projects reflect, as a whole, our desire to carry on investing on a creation model as an open space of dialogue and sharing.
