Festroia International Film Festival
The Tróia International Film Festival, commonly referred to as Festroia (Portuguese: Festival Internacional de Cinema de Tróia – Festróia) was an annual film festival established in 1985 that takes place in the town of Setúbal in southwest Portugal.
Named after the Tróia Peninsula just south of Setúbal where the festival was originally based until 1993, the festival mainly focused on arthouse films from smaller or less publicised national cinemas. In later editions its competitive section was open to films from countries producing less than 30 feature films per year. Usually held in the first week of June, the festival gave out a series of prizes, and its main award for Best Film was called the Golden Dolphin (Golfinho de Ouro).
The last edition was the 30th festival held in 2014. Due to cuts in funding, the 2015 edition was cancelled in March that year, and a notification saying that there would be no 31st edition was put up on the official website in its last ever update. The website itself was taken down in early 2017.
