It’s that time of the year….

Samba Cine Club will begin its 2011 journey with a grand  “Carnaval de Rua” (street carnaval parade) on Friday February 25th.

With the support of Open Channel and Shed 4 we will be by the water at the North Warf at Docklands at this amazing space creating our Melbourne version of what is considered one of the most popular parties in the world: CARNAVAL

Besides a selection of short films and beautiful carnaval images projections, we will have bands and DJ’s including Melbourne’s newest “marchinha” band – AGOBLOCO. Marchinha bands are traditional carnival marching bands and AGOBLOCO is a collaboration of talented Melbourne musicians directed by Doug de Vries.

We will also have a Brazilian fashion parade, yummy South American food and drinks and a best costume competition awarding the winners with a very special treat: tickets to “Os Mutantes” concert at the Forum in March!

More details of the program will be uploaded soon…      

For now, save the date and start preparing your costume and confetti!

Some ideas…
