Rachel MONTEIRO
Cinema do Brasil

Cinema do Brasil came into existence in 2006 via an initiative of the acting chairman, at that time, of the SIAESP - Audiovisual Industries Union for the State of São Paulo, André Sturm, who received the support of Apex-Brasil - Export and Investments Promotion Agency, connected to the Ministry of Development, Industry and Trade, and the Audiovisual Department of the Ministry of Culture to implant the Program. Today, these partners are joined by the Cultural Department of the Ministry of External Relations and ANCINE – the Brazilian National Film Board.

The goal of Cinema do Brasil is to increase the participation of the Brazilian audiovisual sector in the international market, offering strategic and logistical support to the approximately 140 associated companies so that they can make co-productions and open markets for the distribution of their productions, thereby aggregating value to the image of Brazil´s film industry overseas.
