CineBrasil 2018 - Closing Night

Sunday, October 14, 2018

12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center

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 and touch on subjects such as political protest, queerness and family, labor relations and life in favelas. 

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.
