15 Days to the XV Lima Film Festival
The Lima Film Festival will be celebrating 14 years of Latin American films with the 15th edition of the event, set to start on August 5th and end August 13th in Lima, Peru.
This year’s edition includes the showcasing of 100 feature films, most of them making their debut in the region, alongside the films officially selected to compete in the fiction and documentary fields with a broad variety of genres and countries of origin.
During the cinematic week, Limeños will be able to participate in academic activities such as the Showcase of Chilean Animation with Chilean directors Erwin Gomez and Bernardita Ojeda, 3D animation workshops with Andrew Nelles, Beatriz Pineda and Alejandro Reyes, presented by Sony, or an analysis of Orson Welles’ The Lady from Shanghai, discussed by Jesus Gonzalez Requena, among other activities.
This year the festival will be paying tribute to Mexican Actor Damian Alcazar — whom you probably know from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian — and Geraldine Chaplin (Dr. Zhivago), who will also be heading the jury on the Official Fiction Selection.
The activities will be rounded out with the 50 Years of Tribute to the Critic’s Week at Cannes, a Showcase of Basque Films, Catorce Años de Encuentros: 14 Peliculas (Fourteen Years of Meetings: 14 Films), and La Vuelta al Mundo en 8 Dias (Around the World in 8 Days).
