In this its third edition, CineCidade is opening its doors to Sport. From football to diving, the feature-length and short films being shown at the Jardim do Palácio Pimenta recall great sporting figures such as Aryton Senna and moments of historical importance like the 1936 Olympic Games. Each session will be dedicated to one or more sports and the films will be introduced by an athlete. All feature films are preceded by a short film.

The first session is dedicated to football.
