Until today, Paulo Branco has produced over 200 films working with acclaimed directors as Manoel de Oliveira, Wim Wenders, João César Monteiro, Raoul Ruiz, Chantal Akerman, Alain Tanner, Werner Schroeter, Robert Kramer, Pedro Costa, André Téchiné, Andrzej Zoulawski, Peter Handke, Laurence Ferreira Barbosa, Cédric Kahn, João Botelho, João Mário Grilo, João Canijo, Teresa Villaverde, José Álvaro Morais, Jean Claude Biette, Sharunas Bartas, Michel Piccoli, Valéria Bruni-Tedeschi, Christophe Honoré, Paul Auster and David Cronenberg.
With a recognised and rather prestigious worldwide career as a producer, Paulo Branco is also a distributor and exhibitor, both in Portugal and in France. His contribution to the proliferation of independent cinema is remarkable, and his work has considerably enhanced the genre international visibility throughout the last decades.
Since the beginning of his career as a film producer, Paulo Branco has been an assiduous presence at the most renowned film festivals in the world: Cannes, Venice, Berlin, New York, Toronto, Tokyo, São Paulo, Montreal and Salónica. He has been part of the Jury panel of Berlin (1999); Venice (2005); Rotterdam (2006); Lecce (2011) and presided the Jury at Locarno in 2011.
Between 1989 and 1991, Roberto Turigliatto was the head of programming of the Museo Nazionale del Cinema (National Cinema Museum), in Turin. He was also one of the promoters and programmers of the Turin Film Festival since its creation in 1982, and co-ordinator of the event between 2003 and 2006. Since 1991, he writes for the Italian television channel RAI3 daily program Fuori Orario, where he has conceived hundreds of themed nights fully dedicated to cinema.
He has been working at Medeia Filmes since 1991 and is currently a Film programmer at Teatro do Campo Alegre, in Oporto, and Deputy Director of Lisbon & Sintra Film Festival.
Formerly a teacher, he has also worked for several years at the publisher Assírio & Alvim. He has organized conferences and meetings with writers and has collaborated regularly, as well as occasionally, with some publications.
He has been working as a film critic and in various editorial positions since 2007, and his texts have been published at all major Russian publications and also abroad. In 2017 he was awarded the prize for the best young film critic of the year by the Russian Film Critics and Scholars Guild. He has been curating thematic retrospectives at LEFFEST since 2018. Since 2023, he is working as the curator of film programs at V-A-C Foundation and GES-2 House of Culture.
