RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazil’s foreign language Oscar hopeful, Bruno Barreto’s “Last Stop 174,” has been awarded 150,000 reals ($70,000) to spend on promotion Stateside by the country’s National Cinema Agency (Ancine).

It is the second year that Ancine has funded the country’s nomination. Last year, it granted the same amount to Cao Hamburger’s “The Year My Parents Went on Vacation.”

“Last Stop 174” had its world premiere in the Toronto Film Festival in September and opened Rio’s Film Festival on Sept. 25. Paramount released the pic in Brazil on Oct. 24.
