The winter solstice and the beginning of astronomical winter is the moment when the Sun is at its zenith on the Tropic of Capricorn in the Northern Hemisphere. It's the shortest day of the year! 10 years ago in France, the idea was born to designate this day as the International Short Film Day. Every year, cinema lovers around the world meet at the cinema to celebrate the uniqueness and magic of the short film form, also in Poland.
We invite you to the Short Film Celebration, which in 2023 falls on December 22, and to short film screenings on December 21-22 - only in cinemas!
On the occasion of celebrating the shortest day of the year, viewers in Poland will have the opportunity to see various, specially selected sets of short films, among others the BAFTA 2023 shorts programme that includes a selection of live action and animation short film nominees, and the winners in each category, from the 2023 BAFTA awards. They represent storytelling that reveals the breadth and diversity of UK society, together with world class artistic and technical flair, and feature some of the UK’s finest acting talents.
The screenings will take place in the following cinemas:
- Luna, Warsaw,
- Światowid, Katowice,
- Pałacowe, Poznan,
- Mikro, Krakow.
