Outsider Pictures wins $15,000 grand prize

Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Coimbra's debut feature film, A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da porta), was the big winner at Miami International Film Festival’s 31st edition, nabbing the prestigious Knight Grand Jury Prize and Best Director awards in the Knight Competition,which features first-time feature filmmakers from Latin America, Spain and Portugal. 


Previously scooping awards for Best Brazilian Film at Rio de Janeiro Film Festival, and the Horizons Award for Best Film at San Sebastián Film Festival, A Wolf at the Door involves a complicated love triangle, police intrigue, shocking drama, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, intermingled in this fact-based story of the disappearance of a young girl in suburban Rio.

By securing the deal, Outsider Pictures will receive the $15,000 half of the Knight Grand Jury Prize of $30,000. The first $15,000 half of the prize had already been award to the film’s primary production company, Gullane Filmes based in São Paolo, Brazil.  

 “A Wolf” is set to open in its native Brazil on May 29th...with a US release to follow later this summer.

My wife is from Brazil, so on occasion we've watched Brazilian films. The 3/4 I've seen have all been worth going to see, frankly, always very good.
