Why trust us?
We are a new addition to the crowded area of film festivals, but we are working hard to earn the reputation of a respected one. Since we are operated by the oldest and one of the most esteemed private film school in Poland, we are grouping professionals with the serious filmography under the belt.
Our festival has a real audience and real happening. After each season, we organize screenings for our students, and we have the much bigger screening event for wider audience planned for late autumn 2022.
It's our first year, some things have rough edges here and there, some may change, but hey! — we are learning by doing! And doing a Festival like this one — this is the first time for us. So, we are feeling like making the debut again!
We are producing this Festival as we were making a film — to gather a real audience in front of the screen and make them love what they see.
Each of the Festival's season serves to pick up innovative and original shorts, with unique voice and artistic qualities, and select them for screenings program.
It is film we care about.
We value good films. That's why we make them timeless.
The Idea behind our festival is to bring attention to the spirit of cinema which consists of Time, Memory, and Stream of Thoughts.
Festival is a quarterly and yearly festival with online competition. Once a year, there will be a physical Four Seasons Event – screenings of awarded and curated selection of films at the theater in the center of Wrocław.
