Unlike many of the film festivals going on around the world right now, the Rio de Janeiro Film Festival is taking a slightly different approach to a few of its venues and using open air movie screening to allow low-income spectators to enjoy in the festivities as well. With more than 30 screens, this Rio de Janeiro event is open to quite literally everyone.

The Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival is flooding this beach-obsessed metropolis with some 400 movies, including new offerings from top directors like Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Soderbergh.

The festival that launched late Thursday is Latin America's largest in terms of sheer volume, with feature films, documentaries, shorts and children's movies from more than 60 countries.
