This year Premiere Brazil! presents exciting new works by  previously featured filmmakers, including Eduardo Coutinho, the subject of a Premiere Brazil! retrospective in 2009; Beto Brant, in his third appearance; Selton Mello, who premiered his first film, Merry Christmas in the 2009 edition; Breno Silveira, whose Two Sons of Francisco screened in 2006; and Eryk Rocha, whose feature debut, Passerby, delivers on the promise of his short films from previous Premiere Brazil!festivals.
Talented newcomers to Premiere Brazil! include Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscilla, with the astonishing documentary Look at Me Again; and Vinicius Coimbra, whose Brazilian Western, Matraga, shows an impressive grasp of period filmmaking.
Special treats for the 10th anniversary include a restored print of Leon Hirszman's beloved 1972 drama São Bernardo, as well as two films by a group of young directors about their life in theirfavelas: 5 x Favela: Now By Ourselves, a collection of five fiction shorts about various aspects of favela-dwelling; and Peace in Rio, a documentary about the controversial social policing of the favelas.
