Short Waves Festival 2020 Program

Short Waves Festival is an international short film festival that will be taking place in Poznań for the 12th time. This year’s edition will be different from the previous ones: the pandemic has resulted in its postponement from March to August and introduction of a new, hybrid structure. The program encompasses 200 films and 50 events running simultaneously offline and online. The offline segment, mainly events taking place in Poznań, consists primarily of film screenings featuring Polish and foreign guests in multiple locations – including outdoor ones. The online segment is an opportunity to take part in the festival and industry panels for audience and industry members from around the world, without the need to leave the house. In these uncertain times, the festival motto Fixing the Future is incredibly relevant and signals that, together, we want to create an environmentally friendly festival that is open, diverse and safe for our attendees.
