The Ad Arte Foun­da­tion was estab­lished in 2003 and has spe­cial­ized in short cin­e­ma since its incep­tion. Since 2009 it has been orga­niz­ing the Short Waves Fes­ti­val, which is the largest project and the core of the Foun­da­tion’s activ­i­ties. By act­ing at the inter­sec­tion of film, art and music, it pro­vides the pub­lic with con­stant access to uncon­ven­tion­al cul­tur­al events, such as film screen­ings with unique audio­vi­su­al set­tings, exhi­bi­tions and work­shops.

In addi­tion to the Short Waves Fes­ti­val, the Ad Arte Foun­da­tion is respon­si­ble for such projects as: Czas Let­ni Fes­ti­val, OFF Jeżyce, DKF Inter­waves, SWF Beyond and many oth­er events orga­nized year-round in Poz­nan, Greater Poland and through­out the coun­try. 

The activ­i­ties of the Ad Arte Foun­da­tion are large­ly based on coop­er­a­tion with part­ners, which include: City of Poz­nań, Min­istry of Cul­ture and Nation­al Her­itage, Mar­shal’s Office of the Wielkopol­s­ka Region and MEDIA Cre­ative Europe.

We promote and popularise the audiovisual culture including valuable short films.

We reach wide audi­ence through local and glob­al actions.
