The 5th Brazil Film Fest in Toronto begins a celebration of the diverse and rich culture of Brazil’s many states, starting in 2011 with the theme of “Bahia, a place for everybody”.

Bahia is a unique place, with a strong African influence, giving rise to special cultural phenomena like the Candomblé religion; the Brazilian martial art, capoeira; the samba de roda traditional dance, also the afoxé musical instrument and the axé music genre; plus a rich cuisine with a strong flavour of the West African coast.

Now it’s time to bring this rich and unique culture from Bahia to Canada, to show off the Afro-Brazilian style of life on the big screen at the 2011 Brazil Film Fest.

The Festival’s program is eclectic and offers features and documentaries.
Opening night at TIFF Bell Lightbox, on October 27th – 7pm Reitman Square, 350 King Street West, Toronto
2007 //96 min // Comedy // Musical // English subtitles – “Ó paí, ó!”
“Ó paí, ó!”, as the title indicates via a “dialect of Bahia” (“Look at that, look”), turns the lenses on a slum where iconic characters from the cultural scene of Bahia will emerge. Lacking money but not desire for amusement, they get by on creativity, irony, sensuality, and music.

General Admission $10.00
Special Partnerships, Senior and Students $8.00
Festival pass (includes all 9 films) $65
