The FLIP, Paraty International Literature Festival, a unique opportunity to discover a different face of Paraty

In August 2003 the FLIP,  Paraty International Literature Festival joined the family of world literary festivals such as Hay-on-Wye, Adelaide, Harbourfront de Toronto, Festival de Berlin, Edinburg and Mantua. With the presence of worldwide acclaimed authors such as Julian Barnes, Don DeLillo, Eric Hobsbawm e Hanif Kureishi, the first FLIP stabilised a quality standard that has been kept in the following editions. In a short period, it has gained a name as one of the main literary festivals, acknowledged by the quality of the invited authors, the enthusiasm of its public and the laid back hospitality of its host town.

 The FLIP has already received some of the great names of world literature such as Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, Martin Amis, Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster, Anthony Bourdain, Jonathan Coe, Jeffrey Eugenides, David Grossman, Lidia Jorge, Pierre Michon, Rosa Montero, Michael Ondaatje, Orhan Pamuk, Colm Toíbín, Enrique Vila-Matas, Jeanette Winterson, J. M. Coetzee and Marcello Fois.

Suassuna, Ana Maria Machado, Milton Hatoum, Millôr Fernandes, Ruy Castro, Ferreira Gullar, Luis Fernando Verissimo, Zuenir Ventura, Barbara Heliodora, Ruy Castro and Lygia Fagundes Telles. Also some of the icons of Brazilian culture such as Chico Buarque e Caetano Veloso have been invited. With an eclectic repertoire of guests including the English playwright Tom Stoppard, the psychoanalyst Elisabeth Roudinesco, the comic book writer Neil Gaiman or the Argentine script writer Lucrecia Martel.

Every year the FLIP pays tribute to a Brazilian author. The first edition, in 2003, celebrated the works of the poet and composer Vinicius de Moraes (1917-1980). João Guimarães Rosa (1908-1967) received tribute the following year. 2005 was the turn for Clarice Lispector (1920-1977), 2006 for the Bahian writer Jorge Amado (1912-2001), and 2007, of the journalist and playwright Nelson Rodrigues (1912-1980). In 2008, at the centenary of Machado de Assis?death (1839-1908) the FLIP celebrated the famed Carioca writer.

Other thigs to do at the FLIP

The Brazilian music, one of Brazils richest heritages cannot be missing at this celebration of culture. The opening shows were in charge of great musicians as Chico Buarque, Paulinho da Viola, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Mônica Salmaso, Adriana Calcanhoto & José Miguel Wisnik, Orquestra Imperial and Maria Bethânia.

 Although the main activities are held in the Tenda dos Autores (Authors Tent), and it is broadcasted live in the Tenda do Telão?(Screen Tent). The Literary Office focuses on emerging young writers, providing lectures and workshops dictated by great Brazilian and foreign authors. The is also a child programme the FLIPINHA- in which young Paraty students present their work and participate in workshops with invited authors. The success of the FLIP stimulated the development of a series of conferences, shows and book launchings called Off-FLIP.

Since its first edition, the growth of the FLIP is intimately linked to the life and needs of Paraty. Local artists, shop and restaurant owners welcome the FLIP which, in turn, keeps the local people actively involved. Because of all these, the FLIP outstands amongst many other literary events, contributing to the cheerful and warm atmosphere that has always defined this great festival.
