Message from the Mayor of Espinho

Dear visitors and fellow Espinho residents,

As the President of Espinho’s City Hall, which is the co-organizer of CINANIMA, I invite everyone from Espinho and friends of the city to be a part of the latest edition of the International Animated Film Festival of Espinho and participate in the various activities provided by the Festival.

Our cosmopolitan and summery city always welcomes CINANIMA with open arms, as well as the Festival’s guests, whether they are producers, directors or critics, without forgetting all friends of the Festival and the faithful audience that every year visits Espinho around the time of Saint Martin. The quality of our hotels and restaurants, our remarkable traditional shops, the weather, the kindness and hospitality shown by the people of Espinho, coupled with the proximity to the sea and our notable gastronomy turn Espinho into the ideal meeting place to get together and celebrate for all fans of animation.

If you live in Espinho or are just visiting, don’t forget to experience and participate in one of the most important animated film festivals in the world, which every year around November turns our city into the land of animation.


My warmest regards!

Pinto Moreira

President of Espinho’s City Hall
