Rio de Janeiro International Short Film Festival - Curta Cinema


In 2018, Festival Curta Cinema, the Rio de Janeiro International Short Film Festival, completes 28 years. For two decades the festival has lived up to its initial purpose of making possible the exhibition of audiovisual short length works which, due to the characteristics of the movie market, reach the general audience with great difficulty.

In these over 27 years, the Festival has shown a selection of the most significant short films in its programs, both domestic and international. It is one of the most important festivals of its kind in Latin America.  It is competitive and is the first festival in Brazil to qualify one Brazilian and one foreign short film, regardless of genre, to be nominated for an Oscar ©, a recognition won in 2006.
