Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
The policy of the National Film Agency to encourage the participation of Brazilian audiovisual companies in the foreign market to promote the internationalization of Brazilian audiovisual production is organized into two programs. The program to support Brazilian participation in international festivals, laboratories and workshops, assists with services and financial resources the participation of short, medium and feature films selected for festivals abroad, and also gives financial support to the selected projects for international laboratories and workshops. The resources granted to producers can be used, in the making of subtitled copies in digital support of Brazilian films of long, medium and short films. With the support offered by this program, the transport of copies to the cities where the festivals are held can also be funded, including the procedures for temporary export and re-importation of copies, the storage and preservation of the copies produced. The Brazilian participation support program in market events and international business rounds enables the participation of several representatives of independent Brazilian production companies in international events. Since 2014, its regulation includes an annual calendar of 24 market events held in several countries. The resources made available by the program are intended for the purchase of airline tickets. Both programs seek to contribute to the participation of films and projects of national works in the most important festivals, laboratories and international film workshops around the world, as well as enable the presence of professionals from the audiovisual sector in market events and business meetings held in other countries.
