Toronto is all abuzz about Brazil Film Fest!

Check what the media has been talking about our festival:

  • “…with seven feature films and three documentaries, there’s plenty of Brazil to satiate your craving this fall, minus the exorbitant travel fees.” – BlogTO

  • “…, the festival’s strong musical bent is reflected both in selections like Rio Anos 70, a doc about Brazil’s music scene in the disco era, and its closing event.” – The Star.com

  • “I highly recommend Father’s Chair, director Luciano Moura’s gripping and involving drama about a father’s search for his son.” – NOW Magazine.

Renowned film critic goes viral with Brazil Film Fest

Directed and edited by Aquib Azim, the short videos show the Canadian film critic Richard Crouse introducing some of the feature films of the upcoming Brazil Film Fest (Oct 18-21 at The Royal).
