ABOUT PAULO J. S. PERALTA
A cinema passionate since an early age, I became a more serious cinema critic in 2009 when I created my blog CinEuphoria.
Since then I became a member of some respectfull cinema organizations such as the Portuguese Film Academy, a jury on Shortcutz Viseu (competitive movement of portuguese short films) and I have also been a jury on Piélagos in Corto Film Festival in Spain (2014) for wich I also worked as it’s official programmer in 2015.
Although it’s a blog created in the Portuguese language, CinEuphoria as also been a marked reference in Cinemaitaliano.info (the largest online site for Italian Cinema) due to the coverage I make for Italian Cinema and it’s also referenced on IMDb.com due to the annual awards given by CinEuphoria for both National and International films which premiere in Portugal.
