GATO ALEATÓRIO is a cinema collective, created by a group of independent artists, based in Lisbon, Portugal. It aims to produce films according to a philosophy of collaboration as well as to promote and produce a wide range of events and objects related to collective moviemaking. Since 2015 GATO ALEATÓRIO has been organizing MOVIMENTO.
MOVIMENTO – laboratory and screening of collaborative cinema – is an international encounter gathering, in the same place during a short period of time, people interested in experimentation and filmmaking, The purpose of this meeting is the creation of short films based on a non-competitive, co-creation and collaboration approach, The event is always guided by a principle of autonomy.
Collaboration is the key – no matter one’s qualifications/experience – one always learns something new along the way.
