Back for another year, the Al Este Festival, based in Lima, Peru, is all ready to introduce Latin American audiences to the most exciting developments in film (and the film industry) to come out of Central and Eastern Europe. Under the unprecedented conditions forced on all of us in 2020, this 11th edition has opted to showcase its online platform. Over the festival’s run from 1 to 11 October, selected content will be available to viewers not only in Peru, but across the world.

Among the festival’s other sections, there’s a special place for emerging Peruvian cinema and for two retrospectives, one of the work of Czech filmmaker Milos Forman and the other of philosopher Guy Debord’s cinematic canon (presented by Olivier Assayas).

Rounding out the event is a new edition of EsteLab, the film production laboratory that links up national and international projects with professional advice and support from the European film industry. This year’s chosen projects include a Spanish film (El año de la memoria sucia, by Matías Boero Lutz) as well as projects from Peru (Vanda, by Dana Bonilla, La vieja salida, by Alejandro Cook Ciccia, Cristina Gálvez, by Jimena Mora), Colombia (Feral, by Karla Corrales), Chile (Marcia Marcela, by Constanza Majluf) and Argentina (Aquellos perros trajeron estos muertos, by Francisco Pavanetto).
