O Festival do Rio announces the selected two competitive shows and parallel shows of Première Brasil 2021, with productions of new and consecrated directors from all over the country. As competitive exhibitions gather fiction films and documentaries, long and short films. In the Première Brasil program, there are also the films Hors Concours, a competition for new languages, Première Brasil Novos Rumos, and a Première Brasil Especial with great tributes to classic films and great cinema names. This year the show “O estado das coisas” brings together productions that support and discuss contemporary questions of great relevance on various otics and different narrative forms.
“Among all the impacts caused by the pandemic, it is relevant to the way the Brazilian cinema registers over two years of intense online debate for lack of a face-to-face meeting”, says Ilda Santiago, director of the Festival's programming. “A selection of this year shows a forte Brazilian cinema, full of reflection and, despite daily battles, soon to save a place with the public. Our motto this year is 'I have two hours of life and go to cinema to see the world' ”.
This edition of the Rio de Janeiro Festival marks the return of the Rio de Janeiro City Hall to the event as a supporter. E a Firjan renews or supports the event.
“We spent five years with the support of the Prefeitura. This return allows the existence of the edition of this year, in a compact format, but giving back to the city a face-to-face experience and inviting the public to return to the rooms. The city of Rio has a vocation for the creative industry, especially the audiovisual industry, and we need to develop skills and knowledge to expand this vocation ”, says Vilma Lustosa, director of marketing and communication at Festival do Rio.
