The New Horizons International Film Festival, one of the most important film events in Central Europe, will be held for the 13th time in the southwestern Polish city of Wroc³aw July 18-28.

The festival showcases uncompromising, innovative and original cinema from all over the world that explores new horizons in film language, expression and storytelling.

Turnout at last year’s festival amounted to 108,000. This year’s festival includes four competitions with unconventional and innovative feature and documentary films chosen from among hundreds submitted and reviewed by selection committees at festivals throughout the world. The festival will also include the Panorama section with films that have received awards at the most prestigious international film festivals including those in Berlin, Rotterdam and Cannes. Viewers will watch films such as Blue is the Warmest Colour by Abdellatif Kechiche, winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival; Fat Shaker by Iranian director Mohammad Shirvani; Camille Claudel 1915, the latest film by Bruno Dumont with Juliette Binoche in the title role; and Paradise: Hope, the third part of Urlich Seidl’s controversial Paradise trilogy.

The festival will also feature films by unconventional French directors (Beneix, Besson, Carax) as well as two directorial retrospectives: focusing on scandalizing Polish director Walerian Borowczyk and on controversial German director Hans-Jürgen Syberberg. There will also be a selection of postmodern science-fiction films (Midnight Madness), innovative New Russian Cinema, and extraordinary Swiss musical documentaries.

The festival will also mark the Polish premiere of Gustav Deutsch’s film Shirley—Visions of Reality as part of the event’s special screenings section. The film tells the story of a woman whose thoughts, emotions and reflections let us observe an era in American history.

Each evening during the festival there will be free outdoor screenings in the city’s spacious Market Square.

The festival will be accompanied by performances by outstanding musicians such as Mike Patton with his band Tomahawk, Diamanda Galás, a singer with a vocal range extending over 3.5 octaves, Miko³aj Trzaska, one of the most important figures on the Polish jazz scene; and extraordinary female singer/songwriter Rykarda Parasol.
