BRAZILIAN FILM FESTIVAL OF MIAMI

23 editions

The Brazilian Film Festival of Miami celebrates its 23rd edition in 2019 with an extraordinary program consisting of competitive screenings, parallel events, market meetings, awards ceremony, and an extensive advertising campaign with international impact.
 
After 23 consecutive years, the Festival has become a reference in Brazil and abroad as an essential platform for the diffusion and promotion of the Brazilian audiovisual. It has created new audiences for Brazilian content and a business environment for the audiovisual sector in the international market. 

BRAFF Miami was the first Festival with exclusively Brazilian content produced abroad and consequently a pioneer in this format and the international promotion and dissemination of Brazilian audiovisual. In its 23 years, BRAFF Miami has shown about 850 films in various genres and formats. It has created opportunities to generate new business for the movies presented in the Festival through industry meetings and pitching panels.
 
In 2001, we took this Festival format to various cities around the world and created the Inffinito Festival Circuit, an annual showcase for recent Brazilian productions in Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Bogota, Vancouver, New York, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, London, and Miami. Since then, 82 editions of the Inffinito Circuit took place in these cities for an audience of over 1 million people worldwide.

WHO WE ARE

Director and Founder

In 1995, two sisters from Rio de Janeiro, Adriana L. Dutra and Claudia Dutra, and their friend from Cuiabá, Viviane Spinelli, were living in Florida and decided to produce a film screening event with only Brazilian films in the United States. It seemed like they were pursuing a utopian idea back then. But, two years later these three young partners held the first edition of BRAFF - Brazilian Film Festival of Miami, a pioneering event in the diffusion of Brazilian audiovisual products in the largest market in the world.
 
Thus, came about "Inffinito", from the dream of this restless and entrepreneur trio to conquer the world, expand Brazilian borders, showcasing its diversity and cultural richness through films.
 
To this day, BRAFF is the largest gateway for Brazilian production in the Latin American market and the great showcase of Brazilian cinema abroad. The trio expanded their work creating the Inffinito Festival Circuit, which in recent decades has brought Brazil's cultural diversity to cities such as New York, Miami, Vancouver, Barcelona, ​​Madrid, Rome, London, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, and Colombia.
