Forest screening of short films

Replika 16.LFF/curator Maciej Misztal


We invite you to the next edition of Las Móvi - a forest cinema with a unique repertoire. We will present five films from the program of the 16th Lublin Film Festival. We guarantee a wealth of forms, conventions and themes. The films have been selected for you by LFF director Maciej Misztal, who also invites you to a discussion by the fire right after the screening.

From the curator:

By shedding its antlers, the deer ceases to be the king of the forest and becomes one of its many inhabitants. It is difficult to say whether his ego suffers, but it is problably lighter, no longer carries a burden and can navigate his surroundings more easily. And what is it like for people? Doesn't giving up the role we have been playing for years allow us to get closer to ourselves and others? By "taking off the crown" we no longer have to look down, we can look ahead, straight in the eye. Confrontation does not have to involve a fight, it can be a path to understanding. From the rich programme of the 16th Lublin Film Festival, I have selected five titles that reflect the event-specific diversity of perspectives, while corresponding with each other in the themes of ego, confrontation with unexpected changes in reality and verification of our ideas about it, and reflection on nature, mainly human nature. The screening will also be a kind of experiment, as I have selected the films taking into account the specificity of the forest space in which they will be presented. Nature creates reception conditions inaccessible to cinemas, broadening the experience of watching the film. I invite you to join me on a journey into the forest, into nature, into yourself.

Lublin Film Festival until 2016 known as the IFF Golden Anteaters, is one of the oldest international independent film festivals in Poland. The statuettes awarded to the festival’s winners bear the former name of the event to this day. The project, which was started in 2007, is a perfect place for those who like to ask questions and reflect on the answers. These are the people for whom we hand-pick films from all over the world. LFF combines the traditional film competitions with a modern approach and an openness characteristic for the city of Lublin. The festival is rich in various workshops, concerts and other events as well as long talks with Polish and foreign guests who eagerly blend into the festival’s community and always highlight the LFF’s unique vibe. For years, we’ve been cultivating and developing our philosophy of cinema as a pretext for meeting, discussing views and getting to know each other. We are fueled by passion, a passion that we want to spread. We love Lublin and we believe that there’s a community that can be created around cinema, one that we want to be a part of.
