Over the 25 editions of Festival do Rio, one of the most popular items have been the activities on the beaches, and more specifically the free films screening, sometimes with a live orchestra, on world famous Copacabana Beach.

2023 is no exception with six family friendly film screening (weather permitting) over the festival’s final weekend from 13 to 15 October.

Friday, 13 October, held no terrors for families, other than the rain,  with screenings scheduled for Mauro Lima’s “Detetives do Precious Azul 2” and Steven Spielberg’s “E.T.” A film that we should remember was the last film ever to screen in the official section of Festival do Cannes in the old Palais when it premiered and closed the 1982 festival, setting it on its way to becoming one of the world’s most loved films.

Saturday saw Ron Clemente and John Musker’s “Moana” screen afollowed by Pedro Antonio Paes’ “Um Tio Quase Perfeito 2””.

The screenings close Sunday with Celia Catunda and Kiki Mistrorigo’s “Tarsilinha” at 18.30, closing at 20.00 with another children’s classic, John Lasseter’s “Toy Story” from 1995.

So pick up you deckchairs, towels and umbrellas and get down to Copacabana around Posto 4 between Rua Constante Ramos and Rua Santa Clara.
