With sponsorship of Film Centre Serbia, the Serbian Embassy provided translation and subtitles in Portuguese, and promoted the event in cooperation with the Brasilia Film Institute and the Federal District Secretariat for International Cooperation. Opening the event, Serbian Ambassador in Brasilia Veljko Lazic underlined the importance of presenting national cinematography works in order to foster stronger and closer ties between the two friendly peoples, as well as to inform the people of Brazil about lesser known cultural and sporting contents from Serbia.
