Festival Objectives
Promote Brazilian culture by presenting a diverse panel of films, representing the
diversity in Brazil and not restricting itself by existing stereotypes. We aim to
establish a Canadian audience and supply them with an intense and continual high
quality program, while creating a new perspective for Brazilian films in Canada.
By bringing Brazilian film productions to Canada we hope to stimulate and foster
project co-operation and film distribution between the two countries.
Dates and Location
The first edition of the Brazil Film Fest took place at the Rotunda Theatre, Royal
Ontario Museum on 7th to 10th of December 2007. The theatre was chosen as the first
edition!s venue because it is one of Toronto!s, and Canada!s for that matter, most
representative cultural landmarks. It also hosts other important film festivals such as
TIFF and Hot Docs. In addition, the venue is well located on one of Toronto!s main
streets with easy access to the subway.

Brazil heats up the screen
With Brazilian movie production on an upswing, new fest looks at South American country's best
December 07, 2007
SUSAN WALKER
ENTERTAINMENT REPORTER
The first Brazilian Film Fest presents a warts-and-all picture of a country whose movies get
little play in North America, even though up to 30 features a year are made in the most
recent surge of Brazilian film production.
The festival presents 12 features, half drama and half documentary, and opens today with a
screening at 7 p.m. in the Royal Ontario Museum of The Year My Parents Went on Vacation,
directed by Cao Hamburger.
The feature is set in 1970, as a military dictatorship is taking over the Brazil and a 12-year-old
boy is separated from his parents during the World Cup playoffs.
Brazil is a country of extremes of wealth and poverty and those who live without a permanent
roof over their heads are nowhere more numerous than in São Paulo, where more than 10,000
people live in the streets and tens of thousands more occupy slum dwellings.
In House-warming Party, Ryerson film graduate Toni Venturi and co-director Pablo Georgieff
profile four women co-ordinators of Movement of the Homeless of the Centre of São Paulo and
follow them on a night when the homeless organize a mass occupation of vacant downtown
buildings. The documentary screens on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Ginga gets its name from the word for all the things that make Brazilians so good at soccer:
dribbling, passing, scoring and putting everything you have into the game.
The documentary covers the country to show how a national passion gets played out, from
beach, to dirt lo, to full stadium, among all classes of Brazilians. Ginga will be shown on
Saturday at 5 p.m.
The man who brought capoeira to the world's attention is celebrated in Mestre Bimba, a
documentary that begins with the history of capoeira as a martial art the slaves invented to
oppose their masters.
Born in 1899, Mestre Bimba – Manuel dos Reis Machado – devised a teaching method and
helped elevate capoeira to a dance and musical form practised by men and women around the
globe. The film screens Sunday at 3 p.m. and Monday at 1 p.m.
Women of Brazil is directed by Malu De Martino, who interweaves fiction and documentary to
give a portrait of Brazil through five women writers. Their stories are the basis for vignettes
about Brazilian women living in five different cities. It runs Sunday at 7 p.m.
Antônia is a film that has also been a popular Brazilian TV series, about four young women in
São Paulo who form a rap group in their poor neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city.
Female director Tata Amaral directs four fantastic actor/singers in a drama that shows the
women struggling amid poverty, male violence and machismo in the music business.

If you do only five things this week
National Post
Published: Saturday, December 01, 2007
1 Because of their almost identical roads to fame, James Blunt is the recording artist most often mentioned in
the same breath as Jose Gonzalez. Never mind that the singersongwriting Swede's lyrical style and musicianship
have more in common with Billy Bragg than Elton John. Gonzalez's latest album, In Our Nature, has him
spinning deceptively simple melodies -- but his vocals ache from the weight of lyrics that grapple with the worst in
human nature. Dec. 7. 7 p.m. Mod Club, 722 College St. $20. Tickets available from Rotate This, Soundscapes,
Ticketmaster.
2 Temperatures may be cold, but the Brazil Film Fest heats things up cinematically. Six features and six
documentaries will carry off audiences to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, the slums of Sao Paulo and, of course, the
soccer pitch. Or, if music transports you more than scenery, check out Cartola, a history of one of Brazil's most
important samba composers. Dec. 7 to 10. ROM Rotunda Theatre, 100 Queen's Pk. Screenings: $7. For tickets,
visit ticketweb. ca. For details, go to brazilfilmfest.net.
3 Perhaps none of Hans Christian Andersen's tales is more distinctly connected to our culture than The Snow
Queen. In a world of ice, one fragment pierces the soul of a boy who is then spirited away by the mythical queen to
live in frozen isolation. The tale follows his best friend's quest to rescue him. With a score for string quartet by
Canadian composer Patrick Cardy, director Alon Nashman's rendition of this classic will draw a new generation
into the magic of this winter yarn. Dec. 4 to 15. Young Centre for the Performing Arts, 55 Mill St. $30. For more
information, visit youngcentre.ca or call 416-866-8666.
4 If the tempest at the mall has you feeling down, then consider giving a piece of original art. Photorama
showcases some of the most cutting-edge work in contemporary art, with most pieces priced below $600. Among
the many artists with work on sale today at the 21st edition of this fundraiser for Gallery TPW are Cecilia
Berkovic, Edward Burtynsky, Simon Glass, Nina Levitt and Arthur Renwick. Dec. 1 and Dec. 4 to 8, noon to 5 p.m.
Gallery TPW, 56 Ossington Ave. Visit gallerytpw.ca for details.
5 If your idea of Santa Claus coming to town involves, well, a town -- as opposed to a bunch of skyscrapers -- then
the Unionville Old Tyme Christmas Parade is just the ticket. Santa rides through old downtown (in a sleigh, no
less) on Friday night, while shops and bistros will stay open late after the parade. And it's only 20 minutes north
of Toronto (much better than spending 20 minutes waiting for a parking spot at Yorkdale mall). Dec. 7. 7 p.m.
Festival continues through Dec. 9. Free. For details and directions, visit unionvilleinfo. com.

Cinema: Brasil é destaque em Toronto
Samba, Café, Futebol e ... Cinema
Não é mais apenas uma boa fase. O cinema do Brasil já consolidou uma imagem de
criativo, real e bem feito. Desde a estréia de Carlota Joaquina e O Quatrilho, na década
de 90, que essa indústria adormecida ressurgiu, com inteligência e incentivos, e não
parou mais de crescer, colocando atores, diretores e produtores no mapa da
cinematografia mundial.
Em Toronto, a partir da criação de dois novos festivais de cinema brasileiro, será
possível acompanhar de perto os roteiros, os personagens e as histórias que ainda não
conhecemos. Um estímulo em tanto para os olhos e a mente nas grandes telas.
Trazendo reconhecimento para o país para além da música e do esporte.
Quando, em 1995, "O Quatrilho", de Fábio Barreto, concorreu ao Oscar de Melhor
Filme Estrangeiro, inciou-se um novo momento do cinema brasileiro. Antes dele,
apenas "O Pagador de Promessas", de Anselmo Duarte, havia recebido uma indicação
à premiação norte-americana (1962). Após a crise, especialmente na década de 80, as
produções nacionais passaram a conquistar o espectadores das salas de cinema.
Ainda mais com o empurrão de agências de promoção, como a Ancine, e leis de
incentivo. O que seria inviável se não houvessem boas idéias prontas para sair do
papel e ganhar vida por meio dos talentos da direção e atuação.
De lá para cá, mais filmes seguiram os passos do reconhecimento internacional,
recebendo indicações, a exemplo de: "O que é isso companheiro?", em 1997, "Central
do Brasil", em 1998 e, mais recentemente, “Cidade de Deus”, de Fernando Meireles, e
o “Ano em que meus Pais sairam de Férias”, candidato do Brasil em 2008. Muitos
outros conquistaram menções em inúmeros festivais pelo mundo. Um exemplo disso é
o Canadá, onde crítica e público passaram a reconhecer o trabalho cinematográfico
brasileiro através de exibições dentro do “Festival Internacional de Filmes de Toronto”.
A boa nova neste final de ano é que a cidade de Toronto passará a contar com
festivais próprios para a exibição do cinema verde-amarelo. O primeiro, “Brazilian Film
Festival”, acontece de 15 a 18 de novembro, no Bloor Cinema. Segundo a
organizadora, Barbara de la Fuente, da Southern Mirrors, a idéia de criar uma mostra
anual na cidade é antiga e precisava apenas de viabilização financeira para se tornar
realidade. O que ocorreu, graças, também, aos recursos da Lei Rouanet (que concede
benefícios fiscais para companhias patrocinadoras da cultura).
“Nosso principal desafio foi o de selecionar bons filmes, a partir de documentários e
longas que normalmente não temos acesso morando fora do Brasil. Todos os
escolhidos a serem exibidos são ainda inéditos por aqui”, adianta.
Já o “Brazil Film Fest” vai apresentar, entre os dias 7 e 10 de dezembro, sua seleção
de filmes no auditório do Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). “É um jeito bem brasileiro de
esquentar o comecinho do inverno”, esclarece Aldemo Garcia, do Consulado Geral do
Brasil em Toronto, organização que está à frente do evento.
Com 12 filmes selecionados, a cerimônia de abertura, prevista para o primeiro dia de
festival, às 7 pm, contará com a exibição do aclamado “O ano em que meus pais
saíram de férias”, que irá representar o Brasil na próxima edição do Oscar.
Verde-Amarelo nos cinemas canadenses
Dentro da programação do “Brazilian Film Festival”, o documentário “Elevado 3,5”, é
uma das sugestões imperdíveis para conferir, uma vez que ganhou destaque no festival
brasileiro “Tudo é verdade”. “Fabricando Tom Zé”é dedicado aos amantes da música.
Já “Saneamento Básico”, lançado recentemente, é uma comédia que tem no elenco
nomes como: Fernanda Torres, Camila Pitanga, Paulo José e Lázaro Ramos. Na
categoria drama, “Grão”, do diretor: Petrus Cariry, recebeu o principal prêmio no festival
Vina Del Mar (Chile), apresentando a história de uma senhora que, diante da iminência
de sua morte, narra para seu neto a odisséia de um rei e uma rainha que lutam para
trazer seu filho de volta à vida.
Já dentro do Brazil Film Fest uma das grandes atrações é “O Ano em que meus Pais
saíram de Férias”, do diretor Cao Hamburguer, que se passa em 1970 e revela a visão
do garoto de 12 anos de idade, Mauro, acerca da ditadura militar no Brasil. Outros
destaques ficam por conta de Antonia, de Tata Amaral, que narra a história de um
grupo de rap composto por quatro mulheres negras; e A Máquina, de João Falcão, com
Mariana Ximenes e Wagner Moura no elenco, fala do amor de Karina e Antonia na
cidade imaginária de “Nordestina”, num drama sureal e de narrativa inovadora.

Toronto's 1st Brazilian Film Festival
Recent News
November 20th, 2007 by Gilbert Seah
Toronto – It’s hot and it’s not global warming! For the first
time in Canada comes a film festival fully dedicated to
Brazilian cinema: the first annual Brazil Film Fest (BRAFF). In
recognition of the recent surge of Brazilian film productions
being recognized internationally for its quality and diversity,
BRAFF aims to bring some of the best recent fares from the
Brazilian new wave to Toronto’s film savvy audience. The
Festival will open with Cao Hamburger’s THE YEAR MY
PARENTS WENT ON VACATION (Brazil’s official entry for the
Oscars for 2008) and will close with Tata Amaral’s ANTONIA.
The first edition of the annual BRAFF takes place in Toronto
December 7-10, 2007 at the Royal Ontario Museum (100 Queen’s Park). All films
in Portugese with English subtitles. Tickets and detailed film lineup information at
http://www.brazilfilmfest.net
Through a selection of 12 recent feature-length films, the first annual BRAFF
explores the delights and intricacies of multi-faceted contemporary Brazil: from
the sandy beaches of Rio de Janeiro, to a pit stop at the poor neighbourhoods of
megacity São Paulo, to a visit into an imaginary city in the country’s arid
northeast; from classic samba to hip hop beats to energetic capoeira; and from
the “ginga” way of soccer life to the plight impoverished women struggling to
make a living in the big city.

Films:
Opening Night Film: THE YEAR MY PARENTS WENT ON VACATION, directed by
Cao Hamburger
Closing Night Film: ANTONIA, directed by Tata Amaral
CARTOLA directed by Lírio Ferreira and Hilton Lacerda
DRAINED directed by Heitor Dhalia
THE FOREIGN EYE by Lúcia Murat
GINGA by Hank Levine, Marcelo Machado and Tocha Alves
HOUSE-WARMING PARTY by Toni Venturi and Pablo Georgieff
THE MACHINE directed by João Falcão
MARIA’S PLACE directed by Sérgio Goldenberg
MEET YOU AT THE BEACH by Daniela Kallmann and Flávia Lins e Silva
MESTRE BIMBA, THE ENLIGHTENED CAPOEIRA by Luiz Fernando Goulart
WOMEN OF BRAZIL directed by Malu de Martino
Three of the films are reviewed below. The opening night film has a commercial
release in 2008. Most of the others do not.
ANTONIA (Brazil 2006) ***
Directed by Tata Amaral
ANTONIA is the name of the rap group formed of four black girls (Negra Li,
Cindy, Leilah Moreno, Queylenah, Marcus Vinicius Kamau). They fulfill their
dream of performing as the main attraction in and out of the Sao Paul music
circuit but not without balancing problems of their own that include abusive
boyfriends, poverty and gang fights most of which are not found outside Brazil.
What is neat about director Amaral’s film is that the audience is given a tour of
what life is like – though mainly unpleasant – in and out of Sao Paulo. No need
to watch a documentary for this purpose. As an added bonus, the film is
enlivened by the rap songs. The best sequence is the four part harmony
rendition of the song “Killing Me Softly”.
DRAINED (O CHEIRO DO RALO) (Brazil 2006) ***1/2
Directed by Heitor Dhalai
DRAINED would arguably be the weirdest film screened at the Brazilian Film
Festival. For one, it begins and ends with shots of the a*s of actress Paula
Braun, the protagonist’s object of desire. DRAINED centres on the drainage of
Lourenco’s (Selton Mello) toilet. It is blocked with the result of his place of work

Lourenco’s (Selton Mello) toilet. It is blocked with the result of his place of work
smelling of s***. Whether or not it stands for a metaphor on his life, the stink is
a reality for Lourenco who buys and resells goods from people undergoing hard
times. Dhalai’s film works well primarily because he knows how to play his
protagonist right. Lou is initially despised as an extremely dislikeable character.
He ditches his fiancée pitilessly and preys on helpless victims. But Dhalai shows
that this man at least has the guts to make good and stand up for he believes in
or craves for – even though it may be the a*s of the girl serving the worst food
at the stall next door. Never boring and full of unpredictable humour, DRAINED
finally convinces the audience that even the most despicable person deserves a
certain redemption. And in a twist ending, Dhalai delivers the goods on what he
thinks. Brilliant!

HOUSE-WARMING PARTY (DIA DE FESTA) (Brazil 2005) **1/2
Directed by Pablo Georgieff and Toni Venturi
This is England
The documentary HOUSE-WARMING PARTY briefly traces the lives of four Sao
Paulo women with one thing in common. They are coordinators of the Movement
of the Homeless Centre of Sao Paulo. The talking heads reveal their suffering
from childhood to the present culminating in the need for a decent place to stay.
If you have no home, you have nothing as one retorts. Through the eyes of the
four and the house-warming party one night, the audience is educated and grilled
through the hardships. The camera also takes a disturbing look at a
confrontation with the police during a riot. All of what is presented from the
slums and flophouses to squat buildings is informative but one wishes directors
Georgieff and Venturi provide some viable solutions or insight on how to elevate
the housing problems.

sutilmente, por meio da

(Michel Joelsas), de 12 anos,
que se vê separado dos pais e
obrigado a viver em meio a uma comunidade de judeus do Bom
Retiro, em São Paulo. Lá vivia seu avô paterno, interpretado por
Paulo Autran, que fez uma ponta no filme. Como quase todo
garoto, uma das grandes preocupações de sua vida era o futebol.
Além de Joelsas e Autran, o elenco conta também com Germano
Haiut, Daniela Piepszyk, Simone Spoladore, Eduardo Moreira, Caio
Blat, Rodrigo dos Santos.
Lançado em novembro de 2006 no Brasil, o filme será o candidato
brasileiro ao Oscar deste ano.
