After the success of the NY Portuguese Short Film Festival (June 2011), Arte Institute created the Summer Nights Series, adding an outdoor dimension to Portuguese culture, which turned out to be ideal for the New York busy way of life.
Throughout the Summer 2011, Union Square Park, right in the heart of Manhattan, was a stage for contemporary Portuguese Culture in the city, showcasing 20 short films and one feature film, three concerts and a performance.
