Jelgava ’94

Focus: Feature Film is a competition for full-length feature movies. This year’s theme is “transformation” understood as a transition to a new stage, the process of change. The authors of the competitive films did not forecast a pandemic, but they certainly sensed that we are on the threshold of great changes. 6 films from 5 countries will take part in this competition, 4 of which we are presenting as the first festival in Poland.
We finish issuing tickets 30 minutes before the screening or when there are no more left.
