FILM AUTUMN is a project combining numerous film and audiovisual events during autumn in Poznan. Audience will have an opportunity to watch new and premiere productions balancing between traditional and experimental forms, and will also take part in workshops and meetings with directors.
Screenings will be held in traditional cinemas such as Kino Pałacowe, Kino Muza, Kino Rialto, and at Poznan universities, cultural centers and clubs. The program features a new, premiere series of MIDWAVES, which comprises of medium-length productions from all around the world. Each screening is followed by a discussions with directors. In the MIDWAVES set we will present, among others, “The Ambiguity of David Thomas Broughton” (dir. Greg Butler).
ARTWAVES is a set of full-length productions combining film and visual arts together with pre-release screenings of films e.g. “Sun, the Sun Blinded Me” – a strong comment on current socio-political situation in the world of Anka and Wilhelm Sasnal.
We will discover the sound space in the series of SOUNDWAVES with films such as ”Raving Iran” (dir. Susanne Regina Meures) a film depicting the Iranian techno scene. Among pre-releases there will be a film of Michał Marczak “All these Sleepless Nights” about a generation of people born after 1989 who pulse to the beat of Warsaw club life. During the FILM AUTUMN we will see a great comeback – screening of the three programs of short films of this year’s edition of the Short Waves Festival: Urban View, Dances with Camera and Short Waves: Experimental.
A part of the FILM AUTUMN will also include a set of events for the film industry e.g. the public presentation of the report on the film culture in Poznan, a workshop for local professionals about creating strategy, and creative workshops for children and adults.
