CILAVS was delighted to host this festival, bringing to London the best films made in Brazil for youthful audiences. The films screened at the Circular Festival offer the opportunity for all to have a direct contact with the Portuguese language and the reality of Brazilian children in different regions across the country, bringing into focus their habits, their customs and their different regional accents.

The Festival’s aim is to provide to children and teenagers alike, residing outside Brazil, the valuable opportunity to link the Portuguese language to the Brazilian culture and their roots through carefully selected films made in Brazil, portraying Brazilian stories that are not easily accessible to a wider audience in the UK.
