The Mix Brasil Festival is an annual cultural event with a focus on films related to sexuality in its various forms of expression.

In 2020, an estimated audience of 176k people attended the screenings, theatre and music performances, conferences, and debates promoted in the festival's 28th annual edition.

Mix Brasil is held in November at prestigious movie theaters across São Paulo and takes full advantage of the diversity of the city to host a variety of innovative events. After São Paulo, Mix Brasil tours abridged programs to other Brazilian cities.

The event is carried out by the Associação Cultural Mix Brasil, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote the freedom of expression of sexual diversity by looking at new and different ways that this is achieved.
