History[edit]

Officialized by the National Cinema Institute (Instituto Nacional de Cinema - INC) in January 1973, the Gramado Film Festival was originally launched at the Hydrangeas Festivity (Festa das Hortênsias), where film exhibitions were promoted between 1969 and 1971; the efforts of the artistic community, the press, tourists and the locals made the initiative an official event. By the 1980s, it was already the most important film festival of Brazil.

Awards[edit]

The festivals are held at the Festivals Palace (Palácio dos Festivais).

Currently,[when?] the festival makes awards in 24 categories (13 for Brazilian films, eight for international films, and three special awards). Its awards, called "Kikitos", are 13 inches statuettes created by the artisan Elisabeth Rosenfeld.
