The International Humor Film Festival - Primavera do Riso - will present to the public the worldwide contemporary cinematographic production dedicated to the comedy genre in its many variants, allowing the circulation of films that do not find space in the traditional commercial medium of distribution and exhibition.

The selected films will compete in three different categories:
1 - "Best Feature Film Comedy" - to be chosen by the technical jury. Brazilian and international films will participate in this category;

2 - "Best International Short Film Comedy" - to be chosen by popular vote. This category is specific to international films;

3 - "Best National Short Film Comedy" - to be chosen by popular vote. This category is specific to films produced in Brazil.

Winners will receive Award Certificates. There will be no cash prizes.
