Amazonas Film Festival today announced its 2011 line-up

AMAZONAS FILM FESTIVAL UNVEILS 2011 JURORS AND LINE-UP

Award-winning films from around the globe will be screened
at this unique festival in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest

The eighth annual Amazonas Film Festival today announced its 2011 line-up, which features award-winning films from around the globe, and its jury of international stars and filmmakers. The festival will run November 3-9 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.

Opening night will feature the World Premiere of the Brazilian film Xingu by director Cao Hamburguer (The Year My Parents Went On Vacation). Produced by Fernando Meirelles’ O2 Filmes, the feature is set in the Amazon, where the Xingu reserve was Brazil’s first major attempt to create a large Indian reservation. Founded in 1961, it was the brainchild of the Vilas Boas brothers, who were able to unite a variety of tribes on the reservation in peace and harmony.

More than 30 films will compete 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: A Separation, the Berlin Film Festival Golden Bear award-winner and Iran’s official entry for the 2012 Academy Awards; the French Drama Late Bloomers; and The Source, which screened to critical acclaim at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The full line-up of films is below.

The jury will be presided over by Brazilian filmmaker, Cao Hamburguer. He will be joined by American filmmaker Randa Haines (Children of a Lesser God, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway, Dance With Me), Brazilian filmmaker Tizuka Yamasaki (Gaijin – Roads of Freedom, Macho Woman Parahyba), Mexican actor and singer Alfonso (Poncho) Herrera, and former Director of the Havana Film Festival, Ivan Giroud.

This year’s President of Honor is filmmaker Fernando Meirelles (City of God, The Constant Gardener, Blindness, 360)

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. The festival also has a number of initiatives to educate local audiences about film, including screenings at community centers, prisons, hospitals, bus stops, and remote villages along the Rio Negro River.
