Our total budget to realize the exchange, all the workshops and seminars, and to put in place the Festival it raises up to 25000€.

MARte International Film Festival


Part of the overall budget of the Festival (5000€) will be covered by sponsors and we assure the place of the events by the Municipality of Cascais.



The requested amount is the MINIMUM to achieve the action of validating the crowdfunding. This budget will cover only a part of the festival costs mentioned above.
