Montreal International Black Film Festival

Montreal International Black Film Festival

Arte Institute suggests the Montreal International Black Film Festival, from September 27 to October 1.

The goal of the Montreal International Black Film Festival (MIBFF) is to bring audiences the most beautiful and the most amazing new Black films, while creating a space to debate major cultural, social and socio-economic issues. The MIBFF wants to promote a different kind of cinema, cinema that hails from here and from abroad and that does not necessarily have the opportunity to grace the big screen, groundbreaking cinema that moves us, that raises awareness and that takes us all by surprise. The MIBFF wants to deal with issues and present works that raise questions, that provoke, that make us smile, that leave us perplexed, that shock us…

The following portuguese language movies are on the official selection:

-BOY 23: The Forgotten Boys of Brazil 


-YEMAJA: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil (narrated by Pulitzer
Prize-winning author Alice Walker)
