Here comes one week completely dedicated to Brazilian Cinema - From 5 to 11 of december, 2008

In recent years, Brazilian film production has been on a constant rise and is being recognized worldwide for its high quality and variety. More than 190 films were shot between 1995 and 2002 and many were well-acclaimed by the media.

The first edition of the Festival du Film Brésilien de Montreal was a great success with an audience close to 1500 spectators who challenged heavy snow storms and the cold December weather to go to the Cinema du Parc and see a hot selection of Brazilian film and animation productions. During seven days, screenings of fiction films, documentaries and animated shorts were widely applauded.

Cinema du Parc welcomed a varied audience, and the reception by the media was extremely positive. Furthermore, the festival prides itself for counting on the enthusiastic support of Brazilian and Quebcois partners, whose generous efforts and support helped to make of this event a huge success.

Due to this successful experience, the Festival du Film Brésilien de Montréal returns to Montreal for the second edition and proposes a rich programme:
  • A selection of recent Brazilian films with subtitles in either English or French (according to the screenings), almost all of them, never screened before in Canada;
  • A focus on films dedicated to the musical genre of Bossa Nova, which celebrates its 50 years of existence;
  • An industry debate focusing on co-production between Brazil-Canada, to take place on December 4th.

This event will be enhanced with the presence of brazilian directors who will honor us with their presence during some of the screenings.

So many opportunities to discover Brazil through the eyes of talented directors. Dream, laugh, rebel, dance, vibrate with them. Come and discover Brazil as you have never seen before!
