Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival

Festival presentation: 

Hollywood Brazilian (International) Film Festival!   (HBRFEST)

The Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival and Market were created to bridge the gap between Hollywood, the world film community and the Latin American Film Industry. Since Hollywood is the film world's Mecca, HBRFEST creates unparalleled business and creative opportunities, welcoming Hollywood studios, celebrities, executives, film schools, talent schools and students, as well as international executives representing businesses in Latin America. The Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival (HBRFEST), celebrates emerging and professional film and related industry talents.  The inaugural year of the Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival proved successful with 25  films screened over a three-day festival.  Festival goers interacted with filmmakers and related professionals in the industry at various education workshops and Q&A sessions at screenings. 

 The goal of HBRFEST is to position Brazilian film makers as a breakthrough creative community with a vibrant arts and film community of Hollywood. Los Angeles’s State University’s renowned College of Motion Picture, Television and Recording Arts, and New York Film Academy participated and hosted portions of the First Hollywood Brazilian Film festival.  The second festival planning is on the way and has been extended to five days including more film screenings, educational seminars and community events.
