Memories and scars of a body.


Paulo Martinho went to the UK in 2003 to study Photography & Video. He wrote and directed his first short film in 2004 and the film bug stayed. He started working as a Director of Photography in various productions across Europe and was invited to shoot his first feature film while still in Manchester. He got tired of the rain and in 2013 moved to Berlin… From there he travelled intensively as a Kino participant, independent cinema movement born in Quebec in 1999. Berlin was good but he wasn't staying there and in 2014 he moved back to Lisbon. In that same year he founded the first Kino cell in Portugal and its first festival. In 2015 wins an award for Best Cinematography with the film “Aurum” produced at the 48 Hour Film Project in Castelo Branco. In 2016 he repeats history and wins the award for Best Cinematography with the film “Take Away” produced at the 48 Hour Film Project in Lisbon. And again for the third time, with the film "Pretérito Imperfeito", also produced as part of the 48 Hour Film Project 2016 in Castelo Branco. In 2017 he receives an honourable mention for Best Cinematography at Filmapalooza in Seattle with the film "Take Away" and an Honourable Mention from Porto7 - International Short Film Festival's Director for the short documentary "Rhea". He presently works as a Photographer and Videographer between Lisbon and the World.
