7th Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil-NY announces Crystal Lens Award Winning Film
At Closing Night Event At The Tribeca Cinemas

The 7th Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil-NY announced that Loki - Arnaldo Baptista, directed by Paulo Henrique Fontenelle, won the Festivals’s Crystal Lens Award for Best Feature Film. The award, which is voted on by the audience from amongst all the films, was presented at the Cine Fest Petrobras-Brasil-NY’s Closing Night party at the Tribeca Cinemas on Friday, August 7, 2009.

The Award was presented by the evening’s hostess, Flavia Guimaraes of Inffinito. In addition to Ms. Guimaraes, the evening’s speakers included Adriana Dutra, Cláudia Dutra and Viviane Spinelli, Co-Founders of Inffinito, the Festival’s producer; Consul General of Brasil in NY, Consul General Osmar Chohfi; Patricia Mello from Pertrobras, the Festival’s title sponsor; and Miguel Jeronimo and Ney Neves from Embratur, one of the Festival’s main sponsors. Following the Award presentation, the Closing Night party for the 7th Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil-NY got underway and the filmmakers, special guests, members, sponsors and friends celebrated this year’s successful event.

Loki - Arnaldo Baptista directed by Paulo Henrique Fontenelle, is a biopic of musician Arnaldo Baptista, ex-member of the Mutantes, told through the strokes of a painting done by the artist himself. The spectator is brought into his life through the painting and historical images that show the most important moments of his artistic career, showing how he became one of the most famous Brazilian rock stars.

The 7th Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil-NY kicked-off on Sunday, August 2 with an extravaganza at Central Park’s SummerStage with a concert by Sílvia Machete, followed by a screening of Daniel Filho’s comedy, “If I Were You 2,” the most successful film this year in Brasil. Then for the next five days, over 20 features, documentaries and short films were presented at the Tribeca Cinemas. Many of the filmmakers were on hand to introduce and participate in q&a sessions after their film’s screening.

The VII Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil-NY is presented by Petrobras; and sponsored by Embratur, Ministry of Tourism-Brazil, the State of Minas Gerais and Redecard; Official Airlines – American Airlines; supported by Stella Artois, Piola, Quanta, Fastway Moving, Contigo, MPB FM, MINC/SAV, Department of Culture-Brazil, APEX Brasil, Ministry of Foreign Relations-Brazil, Consulate General of New York, and City Parks Foundation-SummerStage.

Petrobras is the biggest sponsor of culture in Brazil. With a track record of achievements, records, and international acknowledgement, it is the country’s biggest company and ranks eighth among the largest global companies in market value, according to a survey carried out by Ernst & Young. The Company currently has a presence in 29 countries on four continents, and counts on support offices in Houston, New York, London, Tokyo, Singapore and China.

Comprised by Inffinito Núcleo de Arte e Cultura, Inffinito Eventos e Produções (Brazil) and Inffinito Foundation (USA), the Inffinito Group has as main objective the promotion and diffusion of Brazilian cultural productions in Brazil and abroad. The partners Adriana Dutra, Cláudia Dutra and Viviane Spinelli are seen as a reference point in the entertainment and event industry. The Inffinito Group was found 13 years ago and is seen as a innovative, strong, dynamic and creative company, capable of consolidating Brazil’s image in new markets.

In 1995, the three partners took the first steps towards of what became the Inffinito Festival Circuit, when they conceptualized the Brazilian Film Festival of Miami. The first edition took place in 1997 and since then the trio has been organizing Brazilian film festivals around the world. In 2003, Viviane, Cláudia and Adriana produced the 1st Brazilian Film Festival of New York, nowadays called the Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil-NY. Three years later they started the Cine Fest Brasil-Barcelona, consolidating the Inffinito Festival Circuit, that in 2008 had editions in Buenos Aires (Argentina), Canudos (Brazil), Miami, New York, Vancouver (Canada), Madrid and Barcelona (Spain), Milan and Rome (Italy). During this past 13 years the film festivals produced by Inffinito had more than 600,000 spectators. This year the Inffinito Festival Circuit was present in Buenos Aires, Canudos and Miami and will be in Vancouver, Madrid, Istanbul, Italy, London and Barcelona before the end of the year.
