We are a small, intimate festival but relationships both personal and industrial are forged easily by virtue of the location. MFF also presents various events which compliment the week including fashion shows, musical concert, plays, gala dinner and excursions to the Laurissilva Forest. The Venue The Madeira Film Festival is staged between Belmond Reid’s Palace Hotel and the Municipal Theatre. All films are screened in the theatre while most of the workshops, fashion show, gala dinner and cocktail drinks are held at Reid’s. The Municipal Theatre ( Teatro Municipal Baltazar Dias ) is indeed a most aesthetically pleasing venue, we consider ourselves very lucky to present the films here in the centre of Funchal, the theatre holds up to 300 persons. Reid’s Palace Hotel is synonymous with grandeur, Sir Winston Churchill & afternoon tea amongst other delights, previous noteworthy guests include Sir George Bernard Shaw, Roger Moore and the Swedish Royal Family.
