The theme of this year's festival is "Moon Landing and Other Interrupted Dreams".

While reminiscing about the phenomenal, pioneering journey of Apollo 11, which took place in June 1969, we will take a look at other grand projects and dreams of humankind. Cinema is a perfect vessel for them – it's no coincidence that one of the first films ever made was "A Trip to the Moon" by George Méliès.

We have prepared a journey for our audience too – through the darkness of the screening rooms to many different new worlds.
Over 50 films will be screened as Polish premieres to the Łódź audience. The festival audience will select the best film out of the 35 premieres in the New Cinema section. The chosen film will receive the third Transatlantyk Distribution Award of 40,000 PLN, which will help it to reach new audiences.
