Carnaval on the Croisette

Caipirinhas on tap at Cinema do Brasil party

Trust Brazil’s Cinema do Brasil to make a happy hour last 90 minutes, and organize three at Cannes.

But Brazil’s film export board and industry meeting organizer has good reason to celebrate. Launched in Cannes 2006, it has just had its annual budget renewed at $1.7 million through April.

Brazil has highly advantageous tax breaks since December. It offered 29 new films at Cannes. And strawberry caipirinhas are devilishly good.

Guests at the last happy hour-and-a-half, held Wednesday afternoon on the Felix restaurant terrace, also took in Brazilian DJs spinning pulsating samba music and toasted Brazilian Un Certain Regard player “The Pope’s Toilet.” Revellers included Cinema do Brasil chairman Andre Sturm, producer Sara Silveira, Elo Audiovisual’s Sabrina Nudeliman, Iaia’s Daniela Ribeiro, actor Peter Ketnath, PromoMadrid’s Carlos Martins and Cinema Libre’s Christian Producer Sara Silveira and thesp Peter Ketnath enjoy the Bettler.
