"A Present Light" awarded at Festival du Nouveau Cinéma de Montréal

15 October 2021

Diogo Costa Amarante’s film won the Silver Wolf for best short film at the Canadian festival, which takes place between 6 and 17 October.

The short "A Present Light" focuses on the heartbreak of Gonçalo, a man who, one rainy night, leaves home to deliver a letter to someone who has left him. On the way, at a street corner, he comes across a woman who warns him to pay attention to the road, because the pavement is slippery. The man falls off his motorbike and thus meets Diana. 

With its world premiere at the Berlinale and national premiere at the last edition of Curtas Vila do Conde, the film has Jorge Quintela’s cinematography and features the participation of Diana Neves Silva, João Castro, Gustavo Sumpta and Luís Miguel Cintra, and is promoted and distributed by Agência da Curta Metragem. Diogo Costa Amarante is currently working on his first feature film.
