The Lublin Summer Film Academy kicked off in November with a variety of outdoor movie events. For 10 days film fans had an opportunity to see 330 films from 5 continents and 55 countries. Feature films, documentaries and cartoons were viewed on 8 outdoor movie screens in eastern cities of Zwierzyniec, BiЕ‚goraj and ZamoЕ›Д‡.
Main figure of film retrospectives will be Carlos Saura, Eric Rohmer and Theo Van Gogh. Initiator and chancellor of the Academy Piotr Kotowski is not afraid to compare the outdoor cinema event with another prestigious Polish film festival "TWO RIVERSIDES in Kazimierz Dolny and Janowiec.
As one of the organisers of the Academy, Barbara SzymaЕ„ska, points out, the festival gathers people from all around Poland. Screenings are accompanied by lectures by film critics and discussions with the authors.
After the outdoor movies, theatre performances and concerts take place.
The Summer Film Academy is one of the largest events of that kind in Poland. The festival is prepared mainly by volunteers.
