Blablabla Media was born in 2005 as a brand but soon it became the platform for the independent film and multimedia projects of its founders, formally adopting the status of Portuguese producing company. In 2019, by re-centring its activity and strategy, it opened itself to new genres and authors, betting on a path to be marked by international co-productions
So far, Blablabla Media‘s work in film has been distinguished with four prizes, several mentions and nominations, dozens of participations in international festivals, showings in venues such as Casa del Cinema (Rome, Italy), Círculo de Bellas Artes (Madrid, Spain), Filmoteca Española (Madrid, Spain), Cinemateca Portuguesa (Lisbon, Portugal), Cinema São Jorge (Lisbon, Portugal) or the Unesco’s Universal Culture Forum (Monterrey, Mexico), and broadcasts in television channels (including Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Greece, Croatia, Estonia, Angola, Mexico, Brazil and South Africa).
Be it feature, medium, short or micro films and series, documentaries have always been the genre favoured by this company, which, during its first ten years of life, managed its production flow as follows: a share of around 50% dedicated to the development of author films intended for television broadcasting and theatrical exhibition; another 50% to high-profile commissioned projects — whether cultural, institutional or commercial. Since 2019, however, Blablabla Media has re-entered its activity, currently dedicating a share of 90% to film and television (non-fiction, fiction and animation), and only 10% to commercial commissions and derivatives.
But Blablabla Media also creates non-audiovisual contents. Up to now, it has produced two theatre plays, composed original soundtracks, published books and managed a participative web-journal in partnership with the Portuguese portal Clix.
