9th September 2009: Get ready for some reel-life action. For Cine Fest Brazil is all set to present finest contemporary Brazilian cinema including record-breaking, box-office hits, even the crime thrillers, from 17th September to 20th September at Riverside studios.

Special guests attending the festival are acclaimed actress Gloria Pires (Oscar nominated O Quatrilho); top soap-opera actor Murilo Rosa (awarded Olga); industry expert producer Iara Britz; festival director and first-timer director Adriana Dutra; and the Golden Bear and Academy-nominated director Bruno Barreto (Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands, 4 Days in September).  
No limits for Brazilian cinema — is how Inffinito presents their worldwide festival circuit. After wrapping up their
New York edition, in Central Park and the Tribeca Cinema, they are getting the reels ready to fly across the Atlantic, to the heart of London, at the Riverside Studios. 
Well-established as a cultural brand, the Inffinito Festival Circuit has been working in partnership with the Brazilian Government for the last 14 years to promote
Brazil’s audiovisual productions overseas.  
Following Inffinito’s international success in
Buenos Aires, Canudos, Miami, Vancouver, Rome, Moscow, Madrid, Barcelona and New York, it is bringing its cinematic showcase to London to continue its mission of screening a selection of the finest contemporary Brazilian cinema to a global audience.

The programme of the 1st edition of the Cine Fest Brasil is made up of 20 productions comprising feature films, documentaries and short films, from a range of different genres that includes everything from blockbuster hits to talented-newcomer discoveries. 
Amongst the feature-film highlights is the national record-breaking, box-office hit comedy “If I were you 2”, which played to over six million Brazilians; the crime thriller “The last stop 174”; and the critically-acclaimed “That’s it”, a low-budget movie that is seeing its young writer/director Matheus Souza being hailed as the ‘Brazilian Wood Allen’.

Documentaries include “Enchanted Word”, exploring Brazil’s poetry and music soul, with the participation of Chico Buarque and Tom Zé and with archive images of Dorival Caymmi, Caetano Veloso and Tom Jobim; and “Smoking I Wait”, which shows the suffering of anyone daring to break free from tobacco addiction – a film for those who love, have loved, or loathe cigarettes.  
”I Cine Fest Brasil-London” is sponsored by EMBRATUR and Brazilian Government with support from the Brazilian Embassy in
London. You can get more details from www.brazilianfilmfestival.com. For tickets call up at 02082371111 or book online on www.riversidestudios.co.uk (Standard: £7.50, Concessions: £6.50)
