I did some film curating in FARO in southern portugal, they have a film
society there that has run for 80 odd years.
I've toured Europe with films, getting across Germany, Holland,
Belgium, Sweden, Czech Republic, etc, Jack Stevenson has taken movies
to all those places and even Russia, there's others who have taken
films specifically to certain countries...of course various curates and
filmmakers from the US have toured also.
If you were going To Portugal you could also do Spain easily, as well
as southern france.
