Funchal film festival is an annual program that presents a wide selection of independent feature films, short films, filmmaking, and documentaries. A feature film is a motion picture that runs for a long time to fill a program. It is varied according to the time and place. Making a film includes an initial story, idea through screenwriting, casting, shooting, sound recording, editing, and screening. Documentary films are purely based on real stories or historical stories. A short story is a small time film that tells exactly what they are about to say.
