Inclusive cinema. From January 26 to 31, the Second Accessible Film Festival, AcceCine, will be held, whose purpose is to promote social inclusion, accessibility to culture and human rights that people with disabilities have. National and foreign films have been programmed with this theme. There will be talks, master classes, meetings and conferences, and other artistic disciplines such as theater, music and dance will also be included.
The festival is organized by Collective Media, JAPPI-Peru and Iqorama.
AcceCine will make use of the technological tools of audio description and descriptive subtitling to allow people with visual and hearing disabilities to enjoy movies.
All films will be available for viewing by the public, 24 hours a day during the week of festival.

Peruvian women include Hotel Paraíso by Daniel Rehder, Daughter of the lagoon by Ernesto Cabellos, Paloma de papel by Fabrizio Aguilar, Como en el cine by Gonzalo Ladines, NN: sin identity by Héctor Gálvez and The cleaner by Adrián Saba.
