Every two weeks, fridays at 10pm


In June 2013, SHORTCUTZ arrived at Viseu, the charming capital of the north-central region of Portugal, Beira Alta.

By showing regular dissemination of ideas, projects and people linked to the concept of “movie-short” the SHORTCUTZ VISEU intends to position itself as an asset in cultural and artistic context of the city of Viseu.

This project is carried out with a ‘twice a month’ session and a fixed residence at Incubadora do Centro Histórico.

Thus, every two weeks, on fridays at 10pm, SHORTCUTZ VISEU screens short films distributed by various sections, whenever possible presented by the respective directors and other elements of their production teams.

Two short films have portuguese production and will be part of the competition for the best short of the session.

We also have a section named ‘Doc_Viseu’ that presents documentaries out of competition.

Short films from other countries can also be part of the program on a section called “SHORTCUTZ Around The World”.

Short films can be brought or shared by other SHORTCUTZ NETWORK city or have other geographical origin outside the network, always with the intention of sharing and showing quality-short films.



The short films directors or producers who show interest on competing in SHORTCUTZ VISEU sessions should send us an email with a private link so we can watch the film.

The short film must be less than 15 minutes long and have been produced in the last year.

However, exceptionally, we may accept longer films and with oldest production date.

The availability of at least one member of the film’s production team to present it during the session may be an important factor for the selection process.

The short must be available in .mp4 or .mov format, HD 1280×720 or higher.

The submission must be done by email: viseu@shortcutznetwork.com.
