Organized yearly by the Parish Council of Arroios, the Arroios Film Festival is a festival of short films whose works present, through the universal language of cinema, the theme of “inclusion”.

For the first edition of July 2016, there were 3200 films from 115 countries, of which 90 were shown at the festival divided by the competitive and non-competitive shows.

In the competitive show, the best short films of the contest are able to win one of the four awards that the festival has to offer in the categories of Best Fiction, Best Documentary, Best Animation and Best Film.
