Lula da Silva approved laws renewing audiovisual production in Brazil

The measures are aimed at supporting the national film industry

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva signed two bills aimed at renewing the film and audiovisual communications industry in Brazil.

One of the bills, No. 3.696/23, extends the period of compulsory commercial screening of Brazilian cinematic works on pay television. It will remain in effect until 31 December 2038. This is reported by
Brasil 247, a partner of TV BRICS.

Bill No. 5.497/19 restores the screen quota, that is the compulsory screening of Brazilian works in cinemas, extending the deadline until 31 December 2033.

Culture Minister Margaret Menezes said that such measures have a positive impact on the Brazilian audiovisual industry: “Such measures increase the presence of our content on pay TV and in cinemas. It is valuable for maintaining our cultural identity. Such laws contribute to job creation and generate revenue.”

The measures are aimed at boosting the national film industry, which now provides employment for 88,000 people.

The two drafts amend Interim Measure No. 2228-1 of 6 September 2001, which establishes the general principles of the National Film Policy, and Law No. 12,485 of 12 September 2011, which provides for access to audiovisual communications.
