Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
During the nine days the Lima Film Festival lasts, its purpose is "to recover certain territories that got lost far from mass productions to resume the healthy tradition of going to the movies and find social and cultural realities similar to ours, Latin American, Peruvian and from unknown corners." Likewise, the festival promotes the exposure of national and international independent production (especially Latin American), making young creators visible; additionally, it generates spaces for dialogue and exchange among creators and also with and among the spectators. The festival has positioned itself as one of the most important festivals in Latin America and is the most important film event nationwide. This measure/initiative responds to objective 2 of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, which seeks to facilitate equitable access, transparency and balanced flow of cultural goods and services, as well as the free mobility of artists and professionals of culture. The Lima Film Festival is primarily a measure/initiative that promotes the balanced national and international flow of goods and services.
