Insólito is the first festival in Peru dedicated to genre cinema, with special emphasis on horror and fantasy. We seek to vindicate this way of making films, promoting its appreciation and the realization of independent projects. We believe that genre cinema has not lost the power to move us, inspire us and at the same time offer us readings and interpretations of our own reality. The Insólito Festival also has the mission of being an exhibition window for new and diverse voices of terror and fantasy, bringing them closer to new and exciting audiences.
Another journey into the fantastic and unknown begins. Unusual: International Fantastic Film Festival announces the call for its sixth edition.
Our first five editions obtained good comments from the public and the press; This does nothing more than renew Insólito's commitment to show Peruvian viewers the best genre cinema that has been made worldwide: horror, fantasy, science fiction, exploitation, and everything that challenges the most conventional ways of seeing and make movies
This edition will have a physical format for the face-to-face.
