BUSTER in Brazil


The Banco do Brasil Cultural Center hosts the second Brazilian edition of the Buster Children’s Film Festival, held with the support of the Danish Cultural Institute in Brazil, from June 28 to July 30 in three cities.

Original from Denmark, it is one of the most important events of its kind in Europe. Buster Film Festival in Copenhagen has selected the movies for the children in Brazil.

The BUSTER festival is happy to once again bring a selection of films for Brazilian children and present to youngsters of all ages the magic of cinema in a bright program, especially in Danish cinema. Denmark has a strong tradition of creating cinematic stories for children and we are very proud to be able to showcase varied, recent and classic films that will win over young children or teenagers.

36 films are on the program, between short films, feature films and episodes for the TV, and the focus is on Nordic production (countries: Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Brazil). All the films are dubbed or without dialogues (the exception are the teen productions, subtitled).


There are sessions for children from 3 years, with reduced duration and activities with entertainers. Free film workshops are scheduled for educators and children. Early registrations and information:
