"Amazonia Live is a project with undisputed cultural characteristics and so was accepted by the Admissibility of Co-ordination of SEFIC / Ministry of Culture, assessing whether projects may or may not be framed in tax incentive mechanisms Federal Cultural Incentive Law. There is no relevance as to questioning at this time if the project is likely or not framing the Rouanet Law, why, otherwise, the proposal would not even be transformed into a project by the Ministry of Culture "
