Movie channel ale kino+ and AP Mañana, a promotion agency and distribution company, are preparing to hold their eighth Ale Kino+ World Cinema Festival in five major cities in Poland from Nov. 22 to Dec. 2. The idea behind the festival is to show top productions from outside the Western world to Polish audiences.

The festival will comprise 20 full-length feature films from Latin America, Asia and Africa that have had their world premieres at major international film festivals. Original and fresh, these films are an important source of inspiration and insight into the modern world. Most of these films will be shown to Polish movie audiences for the first time.

The festival will feature the premiere screenings of films that received awards from viewers and judges at this year’s International Film Festival in Cannes. These include Después de Lucía, an acclaimed movie by Michael Franco—one of the most promising directors of the young generation in Mexico—that won the top prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes festival. The film tells a shocking story of Mexican teenagers who cross the dividing line between reality and the virtual world in an excess of alcohol, sex and the internet; God’s Horses, directed by Nabil Ayouch, a Moroccan film that competed in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes, an insightful portrait of young boys growing up in the slums of a big city and turning into jihadists; and Infancia clandestina, an Argentinian drama directed by Benjamin Ávila that tells the story of children coping with the horrors of South American political oppression in the 1970s. This last film competed in the prestigious Quinzaine des Réalisateurs section of the Cannes festival. At the end of September it was shown at the International Film Festival in San Sebastian in the Horizontes Latinos section for top Latin American films.

Screenings as part of the 8th Ale Kino+ World Cinema Festival will be held in the following theaters and at the following dates:
Warsaw: Muranów, Luna, Nov. 22-29
Poznañ: Muza, Nov. 25-28
Gdañsk: Klub ¯ak, Nov. 26-29
Cracow: Pod Baranami, Nov. 28-Dec. 1
