For the Brazilian Ambassador in Lima, Sérgio França Danese, the festival represents another important step for the dissemination of Brazilian culture in Latin America in general and in Peru in particular.

“Our cinema has stood out more and more for its quality, for producing exceptional works. Greater proof of this are the international awards in recent years at various festivals. Cinema is also one of the best ways to learn about the reality and culture of each country. Peruvians are immensely interested and fond of Brazil. We are sure that the public will like it very much. There are films of different genres that help to better understand our culture, our art, our country”, it states.

For Fernanda Bulhões, director of Linhas Produções Culturais, holding the show for the first time in a Latin American country is a source of great satisfaction. Linhas has already held festivals around the world for about 20 years, in countries such as Portugal, Italy, Russia and China.

“We are sister nations, neighbors, and we have many more similarities than differences. For this first edition in Lima we show our cultural, social, anthropological and artistic diversity. All this reflected in documentaries, dramas, romances and animation. They are stories that move, that make you laugh and cry. And after almost 3 years of pandemic, holding face-to-face events tastes even better, like renewed life, new encounters and new times”, highlights.
