The Festival only accepts feature length films in its international sections. All international sections are non-competitive. However, a jury composed of members of FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) will award the FIPRESCI PRIZE to the best Latin-American film chosen from the Latin Premiere and Brazilian Premiere sections. The Brazilian Premiere section is competitive and has its own regulations as does the Video-Forum section of Generation.
Rio Int’l Film Festival is an important window for promoting new Brazilian films as well as presenting a large number of international independent productions. With Brazil as an increasingly dominant player in the world market, this festival is committed to creating an important film showcase, as well as a forum for serious discussion of major issues and trends facing the industry.
