Panaji, Jan 20 (TIWN) It appears that dictatorship is coming to Brazil once again, according to Brazilian filmmaker Gustavo Galvao, who has also said that independent films which do not match the incumbent government's ideology are not funded anymore.

Galvao also said that between 700 to 800 film projects are stuck in the bureaucratic mire of government funding, adding that while the censorship in Brazil is not direct, it was a difficult time to be a filmmaker in Brazil.  Galvao was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the ongoing 51st edition of the International Film Festival of India which hosted the Asia premiere of his film 'We Still have the Deep Black Night'.
