We hoped for as long as possible. We hoped every day to be able to see everyone in Wroclaw in late July and early August 2020. However, on April 14, the president of Wrocław, Mr. Jacek Sutryk, announced the cancellation of all cultural events in Wroclaw through the end of August 2020. It is certain that the 20th New Horizons International Film Festival will not take place on schedule. Now, we are working on finding a new date and the optimum formula for organizing this year's festival in consultation with the city.
We will notify you of any changes as soon as we finalize the details. We are looking for the best solutions for all those who want to take part in this year's festival, especially for those who have already purchased passes.
The festival's industry events (Polish Days, First Cut Lab, Studio New Horizons+, A Sunday in the Country) will take place as previously scheduled, on their respective dates in July, in the most practicable formula possible.
Thank you for all your expressions of support as they have given us strength to face new challenges. Thanks to your words and deeds, we know that what we do is important to you. And above all, you have reinforced our belief that our work has an important purpose.
We believe that we will soon all meet at film screenings!
Roman Gutek, Marcin Pieńkowski and the New Horizons IFF crew
