"HIV, A Whole Different Story" premiered at the Cinema Mostra AIDS Festival on December 1st, 2013 at the Rua Vergueiro 1000   -   CEP 01504-000 in San Paulo Brazil.

Reception of the film was positive, with only two people having left the theater by the end of the film. Audience members found the film very up-to-date and informative. Ieslei Ferreira Fernandes, the festival coordinator said that this festival was the biggest festival that ever happened in Latin America, with a total of 50 films being presented from around the world. He also said, "...they liked it [the film] overall," and "the film was very well made, by the way." 
Because the film was in Brazil, and there were few funds on the festivals behalf to fly the filmmakers to the festival location, we were unable to attend, but they sent us a laurel to show as proof that we were selected officially for the festival. Also, because the film was being screened in Brazil, the festival had someone make Portuguese subtitles for the entire film so that it would be easy for everyone to understand. The festival director sent us a copy of the transcript in Portuguese. 
We are proud that the film was a hit and hope to get the film into many film festivals around the world. Contact us at if you would like to arrange a screening in your area.
