The World Cinema Festival provides various screening and networking opportunities for talented independent filmmakers and writers from around the world.

Screenings for the WCF will take place in Brazil and Los Angeles. The inaugural season of the World Cinema Festival in Rio was very inspiring and successful.  The filmmakers and independent film lovers made the event one to remember.  The next session of the WCF will once again take place in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.  We will continue to  establish a sense of worldwide community within the filmmaking and literary industries while showcasing an array of amazing independent talent and artistry.  Our 10 categories of submission will provide plenty of variety for the different styles of creative expression. Screenings will take in Copacabana at the JW Marriott. There will also be 13 awards up for grabs.
