COR-AÇÃO: The 4th Portuguese Language Film Festival
May 21, 2015 until May 23, 2015

The Portuguese Language Film Festival returns once again, in celebration of the Language Day of CPLP (Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries). The event is organized in collaboration with the diplomatic Missions of Portuguese Speaking Countries in Ottawa, and now celebrates its 4th year in 2015 with films from Angola, Brazil, Portugal, and East Timor.
 
COR-AÇÃO: "Colour-Action". When combined, "coração" means "heart" in Portuguese, a term that reflects both the passion and the personality in all the excellent films shown each year in the Festival.

The event is held at the Alumni Auditorium at the University of Ottawa (Jock Turcot University Centre, 85 University), in the heart of the Nation's Capital. Tickets are sold at the door, starting 30 minutes before the beginning of each film.
