About

Created in 2008 Vende-se Filmes is a Lisbon television production company. Its audiovisual production focus on innovative approaches that promote reflection on current and relevant themes of the contemporary society, the artistic, scientific culture and historical propagation, with a strong sense of public service and with internationalization in mind.
