This year, Brazil Film Fest Toronto and Brazil Film Fest Montreal will join forces to become Brazil Film Fest Canada. Usually hosted by the prestigious TIFF Bell Light box and Cinéma du Parc respectively, the event is going virtual for its 2020 season from December 22nd, 2020 to January 19th, 2021.
For the first time, we are proudly bringing the best Brazilian cinema to foreign-film lovers across Canada.
BFF Toronto and BFF Montreal have been a source of Brazilian culture for cinema lovers, holding sold-out screenings of the best Brazilian productions each year since 2007. This year, while many Canadians are isolated indoors, it’s more important than ever to escape with a splash of Brazilian culture during the holidays.
Seventeen films were chosen from the 2020 program, including the introduction of a Flashback Section featuring favourites from previous editions. These handpicked films are the best Brazilian productions of the decade chosen especially to please our film-loving audience.
Check the screening program
The program includes a variety of genres and narrative styles; touching family stories such as Loveling, entertaining comedies such as The Dognapper, and documentaries ranging from biographies such as Cássia, about one of Brazil’s prominent female singers over the last thirty years, to the gripping realities of Crackland.
Tickets are available for purchase online and all the movies will be available for streaming from Dec 22 to Jan 19 at jangada-VOD.com

I remember watching “The Second Mother” a few years ago.
The exposure of old customs and prejudices in a country where they won’t seemingly ever change.
It was very hard to explain them to Canadians. And I felt very ashamed when doing so.
