AL ESTE DE LIMA, since 2008 has been implemented in Peru with the aim of spreading and generating exchanges between our country and one of the most important and prolific film cradles in Europe: Central and Eastern Europe and the Caucasus.
In this direction, we focus on independent productions that seek a particular cinematographic language and present contemporary values and anti-values, typical of the social-political situation of each region, proposing in our program, not only a profound experience of cinema, but also the reflection and approach of different cultures, which through their images, fictions and non-fiction, seek to recognize and understand their current situation, their past and their position towards the future and their openness to globalization.
In the years 2014 and 2015 the festival has received recognition from the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, prized by the National Contest of Cultural Management Projects for Cinema and Audiovisual, an incentive that motivates us to continue this work of diffusion and integration of cinematography of this sides of Europe and the Latin American countries; thus we parallelly prepare AL ESTE DEL PLATA, our Argentine edition.
Independent management is a challenge, and we are pleased to present this edition with honest proposals of cinema, exploring the form, language and message that you can discover in the different sections.
Welcome to the eihth edition of AL ESTE DE LIMA!
