Opening Brazilian Stories
Cinema from Brazil – Brazilian Stories: on Friday, the focus programme Brazilian Stories festively kicks off with the screening of Adirley Queirós’ A cidade é uma só?, a fascinating docu-fiction film that zooms in on a curious episode in the history of the capital Brasilia. This film will be preceded by the Brazilian short Os mortos-vivos. After the screening all guests will be treated to a delicious drink.
SAT 11 AUG | 21.00 – 03.00
Uma noite de música brasileira
Next up is the Cachaça Cinema Clube. Film and drinks, a concept that has been a big hit in Rio de Janeiro for quite some years now. A film audience, filmmakers and screeners regularly meet at the old Cine Odeon to watch shorts – and of course sip at their cachaça. On Saturday, the Clube meets for a one-off at Rialto! Right before and right after the films you can enjoy DJ Alice Spitz’ music. After midnight you can dance to the rhythmic sounds of DJ Paulo Cosac, who is also the man behind this year’s festival trailer music.
FRI 17 AUG | 23.00 – 03.00
Brazilian Party (with A Hora do Brasil)
On Friday night, Marie Heinekenplein will be warmed up by DJ Paulo Cosac to get you in the perfect mood for the splendid tragicomedy O palhaço (The Clown). But that is definitely not all: afterwards the party will be continued at Rialto, again with DJ Paulo Cosac whose music will up the energy at Rialto Café to fever pitch!
SAT 18 AUG | 23.00 – 03.00
World Cinema Amsterdam Closing Party
An evening with a truly Latin-American feel: that’s the best way to conclude a festival! At Marie Heinekenplein the Argentinian film Mía is screened, with Brazilian DJ Glaucio present to set the mood. After the screening he will join us at Rialto to treat us all to his 'hot latin tribal house, Brazilian style'.
