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 that 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. 

See full schedule below. Admittance for the festival is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please arrive on time, even a bit early to secure seating. Note that though many trailers do not have English subtitles, all of the films will be subtitled.
