Poland’s largest film festival called Era New Horizons will be held for the 10th time in the southern city of Wroc³aw from July 22 to Aug. 1. It will feature 480 films from more than 50 countries, in addition to competitions, concerts, shows, lectures, workshops and public showings. Last year, the festival attracted an audience of over 100,000. This year’s event will include a review of Turkish films, a show of films by Laura Mulvey, a legendary British feminist cinema theoretician and director, and a retrospective of Jean Luc Godard, a founding member of French New Wave, who turns 80 this year. Stephen and Timothy Quay, American puppet animators residing in London, will also have a review of their surrealist films at the festival.

Discussions, film showings and an exhibition of some previously unpublished photographs are planned to mark the 10 years since the death of Wojciech Jerzy Has, one of Poland’s foremost film directors.

Among the highlights of the festival will be a show by musician Mike Patton appearing with his original Mondo Cane project, and a performance by Michel van der Aa, a contemporary opera composer from the Netherlands. His adaptation of The Book of Disquiet by Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa is a starting point for a hypnotic show combining film, theater and music. Competitions are an important part of the festival. One of them is the international New Horizons competition for best film. The festival films will also be competing for a viewers’ prize and, for the first time, the prestigious FIPRESCI award granted by the International Federation of Film Critics.
