CineBrasil 2016

September 22, 2016


CineBrasil 2016 will be held from Thursday, September 22 to Saturday, September 24, 2016 at List Art Center 120, 64 College Street, Providence, RI. 

CineBrasil is an annual film festival that highlights some of the best works in recent Brazilian cinema. CineBrasil this year will include documentaries and feature length films of great artistic quality, some of which are virtually unknown outside of Brazil. Films will touch on rodeo culture and gender, the use of archival footage, indigenous culture, the borderline between acting and living and family relations through soccer.

Admittance for the festival is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please arrive on time, even a bit early, to secure seating. All of the films will be subtitled. Co-sponsored by Portuguese and Brazilian Studies.
