Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
The Brazilian Film Statistical Yearbook prepared by the Brazilian Film Agency (ANCINE) offers data regarding cinema in the country, including data on releases, box office, distribution, and exhibition market. The international chapter contains the numbers of co-productions between Brazil and other countries. According to the 2017 edition of the Yearbook, there was a significant increase in Brazilian titles released in theaters in the country: while, in 2016, 142 films were recorded; in 2017, 160 feature films were released (91 fiction productions, 62 documentaries, and 7 animations). These titles sold more than 17 million tickets, which represented a 9.6% audience share. Gross income earned in movie theaters, in absolute terms, increased by 4.6% in 2017, compared to the previous year. Among national and foreign films, 463 feature films were released in theaters across the country, with more than 180 million tickets sold per year. The highlight of the year was the increase, for the first time since 2014, in the number of theaters in cities with more than 20,000 and less than 100,000 inhabitants. In 2017, 63 theaters were added to the exhibition market, thus ending the year with 3,223 theaters in operation. In 2018, the highlight was the Brazilian titles launched, which had a record number of 185 titles, the largest in the 2009-2018 historical series. These titles sold more than 24 million tickets, which represented an audience share of 14.8%. This public participation of national titles was the largest in Latin America, superior to the participation of national cinematography in Argentina, Colombia, among other countries. Also noteworthy is the growth in the number of inhabitants per room in the northeastern region of the country. Among the Brazilian titles launched, 22 were produced in co-production with other countries. The box office results of movie theaters in the country, in 2019, reversed the falls that occurred in 2017 and 2018. There was an increase of 7.9% of the total audience, which exceeded 176 million people in the year, with an income of almost US$ 709.74 million. The growth trend of the Brazilian exhibition market, verified in other years, was maintained in 2019, establishing the new record of 3,507 cinemas - a number that surpassed the historical record of cinemas in the country, reached in 2018 (3,347).
