Pedro Cabeleira

Pedro Cabeleira was born in Entroncamento, in 1992. After completing his degree in Directing at Escola Superior de Teatro e Lisboa, he began filming his first feature film, without a budget and with young actors and a young team he met at film school. Filmed over a year and with a long post-production that lasted three years, Damned Sumer premiered at Locarno in 2017 (Special Mention by the Jury). The film was selected for several international festivals, including Mar del Plata, Turin, Tbilisi, Vilnius and Cannes 2018 (ACID TRIP section).

In 2018, he directed the short film Filomena commissioned by the Triennale de Arquitectura de Lisboa, to be part of the exhibition Lisbon Acts, having premiered at IndieLisboa 2019.

By Flávio, his most recent short film, filmed in Torres Novas, will premiere at the Berlinale 2022. Pedro Cabeleira is currently developing his second feature film Entroncamento to be filmed in his homeland.
