At the initiative of the Polish Film Institute, the New Horizons International Film Festival is one of the 9 international film festivals to present selected films in the prestigious The Goes to Cannes at the biggest film market, Marchédu Film, during the 71th Cannes International Film Festival.
The Goes to Cannes is a program that invites the largest festivals to present domestic films to the international film industry, films that do not yet have agents, distributors or set premiere dates.
The New Horizons International Film Festival and the Polish Film Institute will present a selection of Polish films in various stages of production (works-in-progress) during New Horizons’ Polish Days Goes to Cannes, which will be a preview of the New Horizons’ industry event called Polish Days held during the Wrocław festival.
The program of the New Horizons’ Polish Days Goes to Cannes on May 13 consists of six films, including: „Fisheye” - a fiction debut by Michał Szcześniak, “Huray, we’re still alive!” – a fiction debut by Agnieszka Polska, “Of Animals and Men”– a documentary film directed by Łukasz Czajka, “The Language of the Birds” – a fiction film directed by Xawery Żuławski (co-directed by Jan Komasa, Jacek Borcuch, Piotr, Kielar), “Werewolf” – a fiction film directed by Adrian Panek as well as the latest film from Jan Jakub Kolski “Pardon”.
New Horizons’ Polish Days Goes to Cannes screening will be held on May 13 at 10 AM - 12 noon at Palais K- level 4 in the Festival Palace during the 71th Cannes International Film Festival. Entrance for market badge holders.
Polish Days will be held on July 30 – August 1, 2018, during the 18th New Horizons International Film Festival (July 26 - August 5, 2018).
Polish Days, the most important industry event at the New Horizons International Film Festival, is organized jointly with the Polish Film Institute. During closed screenings, film industry representatives from around the world watch the latest Polish films at various stages of production, including completed works as well as fragments of films in postproduction; they also participate in pitching sessions of projects in development. As each year, organizers expect about 200 guests, including sales agents, distributors, film festival programmers as well as producers. Polish Days is an excellent opportunity for Polish film producers and filmmakers to promote their projects, plan festival strategies and network with international partners.
