Dear Friends, 

We hoped for as long as possible. We hoped every day to be able to see everyone in Wroclaw in late July and early August 2020. However, on April 14, the president of Wrocław, Mr. Jacek Sutryk, announced the cancellation of all cultural events in Wroclaw through the end of August 2020. It is certain that the 20th New Horizons International Film Festival will not take place on schedule. Now, we are working on finding a new date and the optimum formula for organizing this year's festival in consultation with the city.
