We are licensing films to be screened on a new TV program about disability for Brazil’s Public TV (TV Brasil). We are searching for short films on this issue. They can be either documentary, fiction or animation films as long as there is a disabled person as the main character. The running time cannot exceed 25 minutes. If you have or know of a film with these characteristics that may interest us, please contact us:
