The 5th Macao International Documentary Film Festival (MOIDF) takes place from July 9 to 25 and features a series of fantastic films to watch alone, with your date, family members, and even friends. With screens at both Casa Garden and Cinema Alegria, it discusses several themes across different generations, focusing on vintage, classics, and new releases. If you’re interested in cinema and film, then this is the ideal thing to do this summer.
As the first and only film festival dedicated to documentary film in Macao, MOIDF hopes to build the bridge and connection between the documentary and Macau’s audience. According to the curating team, “we have never been so dependent on videography to connect with the world. But could we simply connect with and understand the real world through videography? We have been forced to have a lot of “me time” by the pandemic. How could we stay at home on our own and reconcile with ourselves? Each film selected in this edition of the MOIDF, perhaps, tries to answer these questions.

How much: MOP $60 (normal ticket), MOP $30 (discount ticket) per person
