The aim of the programme is to shape tastes of young viewers and encourage them to search for and discover the diversity present in cinema. It is a range of activities spread in time and geared towards long-term results. The idea behind them is not only to expand the participants’ knowledge of history and theory of cinema, but most of all to stimulate their cultural needs and prepare them for contact with more ambitious cinema. The programme encompasses activities aimed at various age groups – from film lessons for children at all school levels to two-year-long course of Polish cinema history and fouryears world cinema history for students and adults.



New Horizons cinema, which opened on 13 August 2012, is the biggest multiscreen cinema in Poland which presents artistic films – original and experimental works, as well as classic works and valuable mainstream productions. The cinema offers all-year-round film education programmes for schoolchildren and students, which are attended by over ten thousand participants. It hosts film festivals and reviews, as well as special events promoting film culture. There are regular transmissions and retransmissions of operas, theatre and ballet performances, screenings for children and seniors, exhibitions and concerts. By May 2015 the cinema had 1.3 million visitors. In 2016, it will be the centre of many films events from the European Capital of Culture programme.



A series of film reviews presenting the history and diversity of cinematographic art of the Old Continent. We will show film works which have shaped the history of European cinema, the New Wave of the sixties and seventies and their continuators. In a Cinema of Our Neighbours series we will present Lithuanian cinema (during the 15th New Horizons Festival), a Wim Wenders retrospective (January-March 2016), and Czechoslovakian New Wave (April 2016). The programme is designed to most fully present the diversity of the directions of development of European cinema, its greatness and importance in the context of world cinema. An important element of the series will be masterclasses conducted by directors from various generations.



A series of screenings of the most interesting works of Polish cinema with English subtitles, directed to foreigners living in Wrocław. The screenings are attended by filmmakers, critics and film experts, who introduce the audience to each film. Both the introductions and debates after screenings are conducted in English. Participants of those meetings can learn about Polish cinema and at the same time about Polish culture, placed in a wider socio-historical context.



A project of making films available to people with hearing and visual impairments. It will consist of a few elements, starting with a free VOD portal for people with such disabilities – the first virtual cinema in the world created for such an audience. By 2016 there will be over 100 films with audio description and subtitles. The project will also include educational activities.



A point of reference for this project is teaching history of the region, which is often excluded from school programmes. That is why we will organize screenings of documentary films about Wrocław produced in the years 1945–2014, which show complex history of the city and its citizens through their memories as well as films and photographs from German, Polish and Russian archives. Screenings will be accompanied by lectures on the history of the city and the region, as well as on the identity of a citizen of Wrocław and Lower Silesia.





A comprehensive film education project for young filmmakers. The first phase is a presentation of the most important achievements of the “Polish documentary school”, and the second phase – film education workshops conducted by Polish documentary makers – among others Jacek Bławut and Marcel Łoziński. The participants will be a group of young directors, cameramen, production managers, sound technicians and editors, who will produce short films on Wrocław, later edited into one feature-length film, which film will be presented on Polish television, and then in other areas of the world.

The first ever feature film produced with paint-on-canvas animation technique. It will be a story of the unique life and mysterious death of one of the most outstanding 19th century painters, Vincent van Gogh. Its screenplay was based on the artist’s letters, and the narrative axis is built from interviews with subjects of over 100 van Gogh paintings. Each frame of the film will be painted on canvas with oil paints. Altogether, over 100 van Gogh paintings will be animated for the film. premiere: April 28th 2016

Even though Basque cinema can boast a long tradition and an interesting oeuvre, it is still not well known by foreign audiences. A film review organized in Wrocław during the 16th T-Mobile New Horizons Festival, presenting works by the most outstanding Basque directors, will allow for a wide presentation of their achievements. The presentation will include works by, among others, Víctor Erice, Montxo Armendáriz, Julio Medema. The retrospective will be accompanied by meetings with directors and a seminar on Basque cinema.
