The Brazilian Film Festival of London is a Brazilian-state-sponsored film festival held annually in London. It is currently in its second edition after first taking place in 2009. The festival is curated by Inffinito, an organisation involved with the promotion and diffusion of Brazilian culture.
The programme involves premier screenings of a number of Brazilian films at venues across London. The Second Edition (2010) featured films showing at the BAFTA academy, Apollo Piccadilly and the Southbank Centre.
In addition there are a number of talks between high-profile speakers from the Brazilian and UK film industries, with the goal of future collaboration. In 2010, Fernando Meirelles was amongst the speakers.
