After the success of its first edition in 2018, Insólito International Terror and Fantasy Film Festival, the first contest dedicated to gender films in Peru, returns in a new edition from February 7 to 17 with novelties of fantasy movies, terror and science fiction worldwide.
This year, the festival expands to four venues: The Mario Vargas Llosa Theater of the National Library and the Armando Robles Godoy Room of the Ministry of Culture, where the entrance will have no cost, and two more venues: Cineplanet: Mall del Sur and San Miguel.
For this second edition, in addition to the Gato Blanco and Gato Negro trophies, the Gato Mestizo trophy has been created.
The opening gala will be held on Thursday 7 at 8:00 pm at the main venue, the Mario Vargas Llosa Theater, with the screening of the movie Culto al Terror by Armando Mendoza.
The program includes more than 100 films, including shorts and feature films, in five official competitions: International Competition, Latin American Competition, National Competition, International Short Competition and Fantasies without Rules Competition, a section dedicated to experimental and avant-garde cinema that uses the elements of the genre as a starting point to explore new possibilities in aesthetics and techniques that the seventh art can offer.
It will be 10 days of a return trip to the most mysterious side of the imagination. Insólito once again fulfills its objective of offering new experiences to Peruvian moviegoers and give the genre cinema the place and respect it deserves.
The 2nd Insólito comes thanks to the sponsorship of the Ministry of Culture, DAFO and The National Library, with the organization in charge of The Last Cinema Club, Jungle and Diva Productions.
