Amazonas Film Festival line up

The seventh annual Amazonas Film Festival today announced its 2010 line-up, which features award-winning films from around the globe, and its jury of international stars and filmmakers. The festival will run November 5-11 in Manaus, Brazil. Screenings will be held at the Teatro Amazonas, the Belle-Epoque opera house upon which Werner Herzog based his epic film, Fitzcarraldo.

35 films will competed in three sections, all vying for the Voo na Floresta (Flight Over the Jungle) trophy. These include: the International Feature Competition; the Brazilian Short Film Competition; the Competition for shorts produced in the state of Amazonas; and the screenwriting competition, for which there is a $40,000 prize.

The International Feature Competition will showcase eight films from a diverse selection of countries, including: the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize award-winner Winter’s Bone, the Brazilian documentary Wasteland, which won the audience awards at both the 2010 Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals, and After Shock, considered to be the most successful Chinese movie of all time. The full line-up of films is below.

The jury will be presided over by Jean-Christophe Berjon, the Artistic Director of the Cannes Film Festival Critics' Week. He will be joined by Brazilian film and television star Francoise Forton, renowned Spanish director Miguel Hermoso (Fugitives, Lola, la pelicula), acclaimed Cuban actor Jorge Perrugorria (Strawberry and Chocolate, Horn of Plenty, Che), and veteran Brazilian director-producer, Jose Joffily (Who Killed Pixote?).

The Amazonas Film Festival is a weeklong gathering for Brazilian cinema enthusiasts, film industry insiders, international celebrities, filmmakers, and journalists to celebrate art and film in an incredible setting - the Amazonian rainforest.
