Rita Azevedo Gomes (Portugal)

Rita Azevedo Gomes is a versatile and independent artist whose enduring interest is in exploring new avenues of expression. Her career dates from the early 1970s and spans cinema, theatre and opera. For over 30 years she worked closely with João Bénard da Costa, first in the Gulbenkian Foundation’s Cinema Department and then, after 1993, at the Cinemateca Portuguesa. During this time she has established a solid reputation for her graphic design work in film catalogues and cinema-related publications. Her films have been screened and acclaimed in international film festivals - Venice, Montreal, Bafici, Turin, Viennale, Jeonju, Doc Lisboa, Marseille, Cinesul Rio, to name a few - and distributed in Portugal, France and Spain. In 2014, Bafici organized a full retrospective of her work. Rita Azevedo Gomes works as a programmer for the Cinemateca Portuguesa. She also develops artistic projects in Theatre and Opera.
