This year’s program will feature a vast selection of 60 Brazilian films including documentaries and features premiering in the U.S.

The 27th edition of the Inffinito Brazilian Film Festival is set to take place from August 5 to September 30, 2023. This annual event, hosted in Miami for almost three decades, has become a tradition and part of the South Florida cultural events calendar.

It also reaches New York with events at SummerStage in Central Park, Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn, and Rainey Park in Astoria, Queens. The Festival celebrates 27 years of milestones and achievements thanks to the efforts of Inffinito Arts Foundation creators and directors – Adriana L. Dutra, Claudia Dutra, and Viviane B. Spinelli – who have hosted 94 festivals in 13 countries, and presented more than 2,000 Brazilian films.

This year’s program will feature a vast selection of 60 films including documentaries and features premiering in the US that reflect the plurality of Brazilian audiovisual production.
