Ricardo Pereira succeeds to Paulo Branco, film producer, in the list of the festival honorees. In addition to cinema and television, the actor has a career that also extends to theater, having received several distinctions over the last few years such as the honorable mention of Cotec and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Diáspora pelo Mundo, and the Order of Merit by the President of the Portuguese Republic.
