Like every year, the great cinema fest starts in Wrocław. Film screenings, Polish and world premieres, outstanding guests, a rich section of accompanying events and a unique atmosphere. Come to Wroclaw!
The 17th T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival will take place in Wroclaw on August 3-13, 2017. It will screen 200 feature films from over 50 countries, of which 138 will have their Polish and 4 world premieres. Screenings will be held at the New Horizons Cinema and at the Wroclaw Market Square. For the twelfth time, the city of Wrocław is hosting the event and, for the fifteenth time, T-Mobile Polska S.A. is the festival's titular sponsor.
The festival begins on August 3 with the Polish premiere of François Ozon's Double Lover. The cult director of 8 Women this time takes viewers into the mysterious world of sex and psychoanalysis. The festival will culminate with the screening of Cannes Grand Prix winner 120 Beats Per Minute by Robin Campillo - a film about the 1990s AIDS movement; it is a captivating portrait of youth looking into the eyes of death, a moving drama and a powerful and important political film.
A Heart of Love
This year's New Horizons International Film Competition will premiere 12 films that stand out for their search of new forms of expression, uncompromising nature and the courage to talk about important topics. Among them are three Polish films. One is a portrait of one of the most original couples of the Polish art scene, Wojtek Bąkowski and Zuza Bartoszek - the Heart of Love by Lukasz Ronduda. There is the epic clash of art and science in the form of an experimental lecture in Norman Leto's Photon. The Birds Are Singing in Kigali by Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze (best actor awards for Jowita Budnik and Eliane Umuhire at the Karlovy Vary Festival) is a transgressive journey through traumas and mourning.
