The Miami International Film Festival will be showcasing seven different Brazilian films as part of its program. Take a peek at two of the films that will be playing [both descriptions taken from the festival's Web site]:

The Ballroom (Chega de Saudade) - One long night in an old time dance hall in São Paulo: a meeting place for disparate, yet endearing and spectacular characters, where through the fervor of non-stop dancing these characters ultimately find themselves. The dance hall isn't merely a place, it's a home.

Filmphobia (FilmeFobia) - In Kiko Goifman's fictional "making of," a film director (Jean-Claude Bernardet) explores people's irrational fears in the intimate environment of a film set. There, a succession of "volunteers" face their phobias, everything from snakes to butterflies to blood. Top prize winner at the Brasilia Film Festival.
