Sunday – the last day of the festival

9-th June 2013

We’re after four days of the festival – Dorota Paciarelli’s Masterclass, Iranian film overview, Marcel Łoziński’s films overview and many meetings of the authors of competition films with our big audience, which were also made by the Internet!

 

Sunday, the last day of the festival will be dedicated to our special (Dis)Ability Section. From 11 am in “Neptun” cinema we will screen an amazing film “My Way to Olympia”. The film director, Niko von Glasow meets with the Paralympics from all the world. He asks unbelievable questions and maybe it is his disability that makes his characters not feel ashamed and gives the film more authenticity.

At 1 pm we will show an amazingly cheerful film, “The Punk Syndrome ” . The group of mentally disabled punk rockers from Finland set off on the world tour. Is it going to be successful?

Another optimistic film is “Little World” – a story of 19-year-old boy from Spain, who travels the world hitchhiking. The boy has got 20 euro and dreams of getting on the other hemisphere of the Earth. As Albert has been moving on a wheelchair for several years the challenge seems to be harder, and the boy’s success is a joy for the audience.

Can one’s disability be an advantage? Why so many films about the disabled are being made? These and more questions can be asked during our debate (Dis)Ability in “Neptun” cinema at 2:45 pm.

A 6 pm we start the Awards Gala. We will learn who will be the winner of “Brama Wolności” Award and the prize of President of Gdańsk, Paweł Adamowicz (10,000 PLN).

After the gala we will be showing:

  1. A winner’s film
  2. “Inny świat”
  3. “Sugar Man”

Notice!

Festiival Passes do not include the Gala. Free entrances for the Gala can be obtained in “Neptun” cinema box office.
