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).
