Henrique Pina

Henrique Pina

Henrique Pina (born in 1987) graduated from the University of Roehampton, London, in 2008, with a degree in Film and Screen Practice.
After returning to Portugal, he worked for two years in Krypton, a film production company based in Lisbon.
He had his directorial debut in 2011 with the short film Tejo, which premiered at the New York City International Film Festival and was awarded at Prémios ZON and Shortcutz Annual Awards. Later that year, he was one of four Portuguese young filmmakers invited to direct a film to be screened at the Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival, which gave birth to the short documentary Passerby. In 2013, Henrique directed his second fiction short film The World Falls Apart (and still people fall in love), which won the award for Best National Fiction, in Oporto International Short Film Festival. He founded his film production company in 2016, Moonway Films, which has been producing fiction films, documentaries, and music videos since then. Aires Mateus: Matter in Reverse (2017) was his first feature-length documentary, screened in more than 13 film festivals across three continents. In 2021, Henrique directed and produced the films Autopsy: Journey of a Creation and Body-Buildings, the latter one receiving the awards of Outstanding Achievement (Dance Camera West, L.A.), Best Documentary (FilmArte Festival, Madrid), Best Longer Film (Spring Dancefilm Festival, Barcelona), Audience Award (Dance On Screen, Graz) and an Honorable Mention (Experimental Forum, L.A.).
