The Brazilian Film Festival brings the excitement of Brazilian cinema to Miami Beach every spring. Nicknamed BRAFF Miami, the Brazilian Film Festival screens more than three dozen Brazilian films over nine days. Competitive entries in the Miami Beach Brazilian Film Festival include feature-length films and short films vying for Crystal Lens Awards in a variety of categories. Movie screenings at the Brazilian Film Festival also include tribute films and digital films. Another feature of the Brazilian Film Festival, the BRAFF Miami MarketPlace, provides networking opportunities with representatives of the Latin American film industry.

The Miami Beach Brazilian Film Festival was first produced in 1997. The success of BRAFF Miami gave rise to the Inffinito Festival Circuit, which brings Brazilian movie festivals to a number of the world's major cities.
