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.
Lublin Film Festival is the biggest film event in the city, it explores and creates new trends in contemporary author cinema. We promote artist who are building the future of cinematography and we want to take part in that process with them. We are an active and open-minded festival which engages in the cultural life of the city and the region. We do believe that LFF is a meeting ground for: art, audience members, the authors and the people who create this festival. That is why we work on getting rid of the barriers which hinder people from exchanging ideas freely. Through a series of interdisciplinary and educational events we create an environment for co-operation and exchange of ideas for artists of various disciplines as well as audience members.
We strongly believe that cinema can bring people together and provoke dialogue. We want to support the development of the local community as well as build one around cinema.
Thank you for watching
