Cinelimite is a new New York City based non-profit organization dedicated to expanding access to the history of Brazilian Cinema in the United States and internationally. One of Cinelimite’s missions is to collect, digitize, and make freely accessible home movies that were filmed in Brazil. Over the last year, in addition to working on Brazilian family collections, the Cinelimite team has begun collecting and digitizing “tourist” films, i.e., films shot by people visiting Brazil on vacation or business trips that brought 8mm or Super 8mm cameras with them.
