The Krakow festival is waiting for the best films from around the world.

    Every year, at the beginning of October, films from all over the world compete for a prestigious place on the program of the Krakow Film Festival.

    From 29 May to 5 June and online from 3 to 12 June, the audience at next year’s Krakow Film Festival will get to watch approximately 200 carefully selected films in cinemas. They are going to be presented over several thematic series and 4 competitions: the international documentary competition, the international short film competition, the DocFilmMusic international music documentary competition, and the national competition. As every year, all competition films will be presented in Poland for the first time, and many of them will have their world premieres at the Krakow Film Festival.

    We’re happy that modern solutions and the ability to make the film program available online, both the Festival and filmmakers continue to gain new audiences. – says Barbara Orlicz-Szczypuła, director of the Festival’s programming office The world has changed, the Festival is also changing not to, as Tadeusz Kantor used to say, ride the wave, but to be the wave.

    Applications to film competitions will be accepted in two stages: until 30 November 2021 for films made before 31 October 2021, until 31 January 2022 for foreign films made after 31 October 2021, and until 15 February 2022 for Polish films made after 31 October 2021.

    As usual, we’re very excited about autumn. We want to be surprised – but above all moved – by the films submitted to the festival. I must admit that – following the long months of the lockdown – I’m in the middle of an intensive period of international film festivals, where I have already managed to spot a few interesting productions I consider inviting to Krakow – says Krzysztof Gierat, director of the Krakow Film Festival.

    The 62nd Krakow Film Festival will take place in Krakow cinemas from 29 May to 5 June and online across Poland on 3–12 June 2022.
