KINO-DOC documentary film core was established in December 2012, aiming to create two documentary film courses (one initial and another advanced in a second year) with innovative programs that could provide technical skills to professionals and students of different areas of knowledge, teaching cinema in theoretical terms through images of the cinema itself, projected, explained and debated, and in practical terms enabling students to consistently know how to shoot with their cameras and learn digital video editing and other post-production procedures with their own computers.

In October 2018 starts one more edition of the KINO-DOC DOCUMENTARY FILM COURSE.

Each pupil with or without previous technical knowledge is invited to pick a subject and to make a documentary. The Documentary Film History is taught and the several techniques of the cinematic process until the final cut of each film, developed during the classes.

It’s a weekly course with 9 choices for a schedule:

Monday, 6h30-7h45 / 7h50-9h05 PM (starting on October 1)

Tuesday, 2h45-4h / 6h30-7h45 PM (starting on October 2)

Wednesday, 2h-3h15 / 7h50-9h05 PM (starting on October 3)

Thursday, 6h30-7h45 / 7h50-9h05 PM (starting on October 4)

Friday, 2h-3h15 PM (starting on October 12, due to holiday on October 5)

Until June 2019, € 55 per month.

Preregistrations can be done by simply sending us your name, phone number, e-mail and the chosen schedule.

It is possible to attend classes in English in one of the above schedules or in an extra one if there is a large number of pupils who doesn’t understand Portuguese and speak English (people in this situation should make preregistrations and wait until the beginning of the course to know if there will be classes in English). Commonly the course is taught in Portuguese, although classes have a lot of visual content, which is a good way to also learn Portuguese.


Starting also in October, the KINO-DOC ADVANCED DOCUMENTARY FILM COURSE 2018/19 is attended by students who have finished the above course in previous years.

In this course the pupils reinforce their technical and theoretical knowledge, developing, each one of them, a documentary feature film. Classes are mainly practical with tutorial guidance and orientation by the teacher to a more collective work.

It’s a weekly course with 3 choices for a schedule:

Tuesday, 7h50-9h05 PM (starting on October 2)

Wednesday, 6h30-7h45 PM (starting on October 3)

Thursday, 2h-3h15 PM (starting on October 5)

Until July 2019, € 55 per month.
