Festival start: 23 September 2021      Festival end: 26 September 2021

Insólito is the first Festival in Peru dedicated to genre cinema, with an emphasis on horror and fantasy. Our mission is to motivate audiences to appreciate and vindicate this type of filmmaking, as well as support independent film projects. We believe that genre cinema has the power to move and inspire us, as well as provide a window through which we can interpret our own reality. Insólito is also firmly committed to providing a platform for new and diverse voices in horror and fantasy filmmaking to reach wide-ranging audiences eager to discover them.

And so begins another journey into the unknown. Insólito: International Horror & Fantasy Film Festival, will have its fourth edition from 23 to 26 September 2021. Due to the current conditions caused by the covid-19 that limit the development of face-to-face activities, this edition will be virtual through the use of digital platforms for the exhibition of films and the development of meetings.

The positive reception from both specialized press and general audiences over its first
three editions is enough for Insólito to renew its commitment to presenting the best of current international genre cinema: horror, fantasy, science fiction, exploitation and everything else that challenges and subverts more conventional forms of making and watching movies.

+ Official Laurels for winner in International Film Competition.

+ Official Laurels for winner in International Short Film Competition.

+ Official Laurels for winner in Peruvian Competition.

+ Also, winner in Peruvian Competition will get support and specialized advice in the development of his next project.

+ One or more Honorable Mentions can be included if the juries deem it necessary.
