34 Sao Paulo International Film Festival

The Mostra
From October 22nd to the 4th of November, São Paulo hosts the traditional São Paulo International Film Festival. For two weeks, more then 400 films from several countries will be exhibited at the 34th Mostra, in over 20 spaces among cinemas, museums and cultural centers around the capital city. The selection provides an overview of the world contemporary cinema production and of the tendencies, themes, narratives and aesthetics produced worldwide.

Mostra Online
For the second year, São Paulo International Film festival promotes, in partnership with Mubi, the biggest platform of films on the internet, Mostra Online. This year, beyond the regular exhibitions in the theaters, 68 films of the selection of the 34th Mostra will also have free screenings on the internet. This is a great chance for Mostra’s fans all over Brazil, including those who don’t live in São Paulo, to be part of the event. The exhibition of the movies was previously authorized by the producers – and all the foreign language films have subtitles.

Free bike
In an unprecedented initiative, the 34th Mostra in partnership with the NGO Parada Virtual and Sabesp, connects with a free bike circuit, 15 of the exhibition halls. The first hour of loan is free and the others cost R$ 10 per hour. To get a bike, you have to register - the registrations can be made presenting a photo ID and proof of residence or visa for foreigners - and provide a credit card with a minimum balance of available R$ 350. Those who have no credit card can purchase the cyclist card at the price of R$ 15 and it will be valid during all the exhibition (from October 22 to November 4). In this case, the registration must be done at the Mostra Center in the Conjunto Nacional or at Unibanco Arteplex, located on the 3rd floor of the Shopping Frei Caneca.
