Casa do Xisto and Porto/Post/Doc are starting a partnership that will kick off in September with two 16mm Immersive Labs entirely dedicated to Eco-Processing, led by Ricardo Leite, with the assistance of Juliana Julieta.

We are delighted to invite everyone interested to come and watch the results of the 16mm Lab films which kicks off on 10 September, on Saturday 16 September. We’ll have a public screening in the garden cinema of Casa do Xisto and a lovely party.

To confirm your presence, you can send an email to and you’ll receive more information on how to reach us.

Save the date of 23 September for the public screening of the films from the two 16mm Immersive Labs in Porto. We’ll give you more information about the programme and the venue very soon.

Located in the village of Macieira de Rates, Barcelos, Minho region of Portugal, is an artistic residence dedicated to cinema and visual arts.

A laboratory of free expression that crosses artistic languages, privileging the preservation of cinematographic arts and fostering social inclusion through filmmaking.

We facilitate access to cinema and culture in a low population density environment, combining nature and the rural environment with the creative and communal role of art.
