15. Lublin Film Festival

The 15th Lublin Film Festival will be held between November 19th and 27th. The anniversary edition will be celebrated in the cinema, which is the place where films should be watched.
After last year’s online edition, it’s time to return to the building of the Centre for Culture in Lublin. Selected events will also be held at the Academic Centre for Culture “Chatka Żaka”. The programme includes nearly 140 short and full-length productions from around the world, which will be presented in competition and thematic sections.

Similarly to the last year’s edition, the LFF consists of international competitions. This time, 7 productions will compete in the competition for the best full-length feature, while 51 films will compete in 7 short film competitions.

The opening film will be “My wonderful life” by Łukasz Grzegorzek, awarded at the Gdynia Film Festival for directing. The historical drama “Shadow Country”, winner of the 7th Czech Lions, also participates in the competition. This is the latest production by Bohdan Slama, the creator of “Wild Bees” and “Women of Ice”. We will also see the debut film by Grigory Kolomytsev, “Chupacabra”, shot in the picturesque landscapes of the Russian steppe. The winner of the Golden Anteater, Grzegorz Jaroszuk, also returns to Lublin. His latest production, “Dear Ones”, will tell the story of a search for a woman who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Fans of the new wave of Romanian cinema will see Andrei Cohn’s “Arrest” awarded at the Cairo festival. Also taking part in the competition is “Isak”, the Lithuanian debut of Jurgis Matulevičius, nominated for the European Film Award. Finally, the revelation of the festival in Karlovy Vary, or “Wild Roots” by Hajni Kis. In the debut full-length film of the winner of the Golden Anteaters, the director tells the story of the exceptional journey of her father and daughter. Lublin audience will see this film as the first in Poland.

  • [ Kadr z filmu. Ciemne wnętrze. Za maszyną do szycia oświetloną gołą żarówką siedzi młoda kobieta. W dłoniach trzyma zszywaną tkaninę, ale spogląda na coś lub kogoś przed sobą. ]
