Will I get a printed program on the spot?

We want to become an eco-friendly festival. In order to do so, we need to make a gradual reduction of our paper consumption. Therefore, we will no longer print the festival programs. On our website you will find a clear calendar, thanks to which you can easily and quickly check what we have prepared for you. You can also download the program as a pdf file. During the festival, in the building of the Centre for Culture in Lublin, you will find a board with the schedule of events, and our volunteers will gladly help you find everything in the program. You will always find them at the entrances of the Screening Room and the Main Performance Room one hour before the first screening, and till the last screening of the day.

Can I come to the shows with my child?

Great idea! If your child is just beginning his/her adventure with cinema, we invite you to a special screening of films intended for viewers aged 7 and older, which will take place on November 19 at 11:00 am at the Center for Culture in Lublin. The screening will be followed by workshops for the whole family. Come all, and you will surely have a great time. For children, there is a screening of the feature-length animated film “Copernicus’ Star” on Sunday, November 20, in the Screening Room from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., as well as a Retrospective of the Animated Film Studio from Bielsko-Biala on Saturday, November 26, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. also in the Screening Room. Children can try their hand at stop-motion animation workshops led by Monika Kuczyniecka on Saturday, November 26 in Rehearsal studio no. 3. If your child is a little older, check out the films that are age-appropriate. Next to each title you will find information about the suggested age group of the audience.

How should I prepare to participate in the festival?
