New Horizons Cinema has been operating in Wroclaw since August 31, 2012. Wroclaw’s Kino Nowe Horyzonty is a 9 screens cinema, fuelled by the energy initiated at the New Horizons International Film Festival which rules during the summer. The cinema repertoire includes hits from world’s biggest festivals, reviews of films from around the globe (including the Asian cinema – as part of the Five Flavours Film Festival, Review of the New French Cinema or Cinema Italia Oggi), film history courses, screenings for children, seniors, parents with toddlers. If Hollywood – only at its best. In addition, events exploiting collaborations between different types of art – e.g. Avant Art, combining alternative music with film.
KNH has a mission to be more of a cultural centre, a place where various initiatives, ngo organizations and communities have enough space to coexist and flourish. It is also a space for meetings, a friendly place for individual and team work. Diversity has a crucial impact on building our identity. That is why we are enthusiastic to co-organize social initiatives such as letter-writing campaign with Amnesty International, dog food collection on the occasion of White dog premiere (directed by Kornél Mundruczó). As a part of ongoing cooperation with Wrocław University we had also organised a blood collection combined with special screening for those who took place in the event.
Among various social events, we have also a special programme for our youngest viewers. We’ve developed an original education program, which contains screenings for schools with lecture beforehand and workshops after screenings. We are also hosting the Young Audience Awards, The Kids Film Festival and Jazz Morning Kids – special screening for children with live music during Jazztopad Festival. We treat the cinema’s building as a one big playground for children organizing hide and seek or paper chase games.
We are also very welcome to host in our foyer art exhibitions, unplugged concerts of local musicians, fairs of home craftsmen, board games tournaments and every other activity that has its audience in our city. We’re trying to keep our door wide open.
