Registration is open from January 15 to February 14 for the 1st at the Quebrada Film Festival. There will be three competitive shows in short films showing universes of young people, women and LGBTQI + who live in the periphery or central occupations of the city of São Paulo. The registered films must have a maximum duration of 25 minutes, having been finished after January 2017, in any format, genre and classification. Free registrations can be made at site.
There will be three categories: Shows Manas, Monas and Manos, made respectively by women, LGBTQI + and young filmmakers, all portraying the different realities of life on the outskirts of the city of São Paulo.
According to the director of the Festival, Stefanie Lacerda, the proposal is focused on the role of filmmakers from the peripheries. “We are in a moment of mobilization to guarantee, continue social achievements and to include historically excluded segments: poor, black, women and LGBTQI +”, stresses Stefanie, who served as assistant director of Miniseries on Play TV.
Festival takes place in March:
Curated by Monica Trigo, the 1st at the Quebrada Film Festival takes place from March 1st to 7th and will be broadcast on the platform SPCine Play. There will also be debates and chats on the Festival's social networks.
“We believe that culture is a key element, but as long as it values peripheral community initiatives that represent the diversity of the territories. That create opportunity for artistic individuals and collectives. So we are going to show films made by young people from the periphery, because cinema is a language that speaks to everyone ”, explains Stefanie Lacerda.
The Festival will feature a technical jury composed of three audiovisual professionals to choose the best films by category: Mostra Manos, Mostra Minas and Mostra Monas. Among them, actor Francisco Gaspar, who, among other prizes, received Kikito at the Gramado Festival; the journalist Ana Paula Nogueira, with passages for the newspapers O Estado de SP, Gazeta Mercantil and the international news agency Reuters. Ana is also an audiovisual director, especially documentaries focused on the feminine / feminist theme. In addition to Paula Ferreira, presenter and actress producer. One of the personalities of great influence in the LGBTQI + activism.
The award results will be announced in a live at the end of the Festival. The winning film for each show will win the Perifa Trophy. The choice of the best film in the three categories will be made by popular vote.
The 1st at the Quebrada Film Festival is sponsored by SPCine, the Municipal Secretary of Culture and the Municipal Government of São Paulo.
