The Belo Horizonte International Short Film Festival is in its 11th edition
November 6th to 13th, 2009
The capital of Minas Gerais prepares itself for the marathon of short-films exhibitions. Here comes the 11th Belo Horizonte Short Film Festival. The 2009 version of the event will screen 119 films between the 06th and 13th of November at Palácio das Artes. And what’s best, with the programs completely free.
The Brazilian and international productions is organized in the exhibitions: “Vanguards and Neovanguards”, “Imperfect Field” and “Brazil’s Short Films 2008” – with films selected by the festival’s curators – and more in the exhibitions of the festivals of Bafici (Argentina), Locarno (Switzerland), Oberhausen (Germany) and Vila do Conde (Portugal).
Rarely seen films and some never screened in Brazil, dated back to the 20s, were retrieved from the collections of the New York Film-Makers Cooperative, EAI, Filmbank, Lux, Lightcone and can be seen in the Vanguard and Neovanguard Exhibition. Films that left significant marks in their circuit through the exhibitions rooms and film festivals, finding strong repercussion among spectators, critics and filmmakers, and films that weren’t exhibited as much, but that stood out in the Brazilian and international panorama will be screened in the other exhibitions.
Besides the exhibitions, a round table with Diego Trerotola, curator for the Bafici Festival (Argentina), and Nuno Simões Guerra, from the Vila do Conde Festival (Portugal), commented screenings, debates and meetings complete the program of the 11th Belo Horizonte International Short Film Festival.
It’s already available at the site – www.festivaldecurtasbh.com.br – the complete schedule for this 11th edition of the festival.
All programs have free entrance and the tickets will be distributed 15 minutes before each session.
