Friday, May 13th, 2022 - Sunday, June 5th, 2022


FIMFA Lx22 – International Festival of Puppets and Animated Forms

22.ª Edition – 13 May to 5 June 2022

FIMFA Lx – International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms is one of the most important festivals of puppetry and theatre in Portugal. Running since 2001, the festival is programmed and produced annually by the puppet company A Tarumba – Teatro de Marionetas.

FIMFA Lx is an artistic project, open to new tendencies, of international dimension presenting an artistic and technical high-level programme, with a very contemporary point of view. The Festival won the 2010 Critics Award given by the Portuguese Association of Theatre Critics, and the artistic directors, Luís Vieira and Rute Ribeiro, received the Personality Award 2013, by their work on the festival.

Since its first edition, confront and innovation are characteristics of this event, by presenting a programme that combines the newest technologies with the most traditional puppet companies, and projects with very elemental techniques, performed in an experimental and contemporary way.

The Festival aims to introduce different styles of puppetry and an artistic transversality by presenting a big diversity of techniques (shadows, objects, full-view manipulation, visual theatre, etc.), to the Portuguese audience, and to be a moment of shared experiences to artists and performers.

In each edition, FIMFA intends to bring together the interest of artists, critics and theatre programmers, creating relations between directors and public, arts and languages, theatre and schools, universities and institutions.

Each year are invited a wide range of international companies, from all around the world, to perform in the best theatres of Lisbon, that are also our partners, like the Teatro Teatro São Luiz or Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, among other spaces.
