The VII International Film Festival for Animals (Mostra Animal 2017) will be at the wonderful city. Rio de Janeiro is going to become the stage for the biggest cinema event of Brasil devoted to animals.

Today it is one of the most relevant cinema events in the world, totally focused on the discussion of animal rights and the social and environmental impacts arising from the interaction between humans and nonhuman animals.
