MIDAS Filmes was created in 2006 by people with long and wide experience in this area.
First task was to build up a DVD catalogue, which now includes over 150 films. Next was to develop a distribution branch, which released almost 30 films up until now. But also film production: a dozen documentaries and now also feature films.
Our DVD catalogue includes films by so indispensable directors as the likes of Bresson, Tarkovski, Godard, Moretti, Varda, Kusturica, Cassavetes, Kiarostami, Leigh, Pialat and Greenaway. But also over 30 Portuguese films, fiction and documentaries, by filmmakers Pedro Costa, Fernando Lopes, João Canijo, Silva Melo, Catarina Alves Costa, Bruno de Almeida and so many others.
In the theatres we released films like Palm d’Or winner The Class, Persepolis, Tamara Drewe, Zidane, Caos Calmo, The Beaches of Agnès, Shirin, Go Get Some Rosemary and Ne Change Rien, covering all areas of the most creative contemporary filmmaking.
