The 18th edition of the New Horizons International Film Festival will take place in Wrocław, from 26th July to 5th August 2018. The New Horizons International Competition — a platform where artistic cinema that extend the boundaries set by conventional filmmakers is presented — remains the core element of the festival. The Competition is a place for cinematic visionaries and uncompromising artists who have the courage to follow their own path in defiance of popular trends, expand the language of the cinema, and to talk about significant issues in their own, unique language.
The Competition includes innovative feature films, experimental, and animated productions that are longer than 60 minutes and have been produced after 1st of January 2017 (that have never been publicly screened in Poland). The Festival organizers prefer world-wide, international, and European premieres.
The winner of the New Horizons International Competition will be awarded the Grand Prix and a prize of 15,000 EUR. The Festival audience will be offering their award, too.
Submissions are now open at nowehoryzonty.pl and will be accepted until 25th of March 2018.
