Brazilian Film Festival hits Adelaide

Brazil is one of the most multicultural nationalities in the world, so it’s no surprise that their cinema productions are captivating people around the globe.

Adelaide welcomes the Brazil Film Festival to Mercury Cinema beginning Thursday, February 21, where the unique beauty, images, sounds and effervescence of this fabulous culture are sure to impress and wow the crowds over four consecutive nights.

Inaugurated in Australia (Sydney) in 2009, the festival is only in its fourth year and is striving to maintain a vibrant cross-cultural celebration of the best Brazilian cinema productions around.

The festival is an initiative of the Brazil Foundation, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation. Determined to raise awareness of Brazil’s environmental problems, the festival joins forces with the foundation to raise funds and develop campaigns that help inform the public about the social realities in Brazil.

All nationalities and age groups are welcome to attend. If you love the arts, films, cinematography and different cultures and languages, the Brazil Film Festival is for you.

If you’re up for a trip to Brazil without leaving Adelaide’s CBD, make sure you visit Morphett Street’s Mercury Cinema in February where you will experience a hive of Brazilian immersion through their fantastic talent in film
