The screenings will take place at the Regional Culture Center in Ko這brzeg and at the local beach.

This year’s festival will feature some 30 films, including Polish productions such as Wojciech Smarzowski’s Drog闚ka (Traffic Department—2013), Ryszard Bugajski’s Uk豉d zamkni皻y (Closed Circuit—2013), Eugeniusz Korin’s S瘼 (The Vulture—2013), W豉dys豉w Pasikowski’s Pok這sie (Aftermath—2012), and Maciej Kowalewski’s Trzy siostry T (Three Sisters T—2011).
