Short films from all over the world, not longer than 30 minutes, will compete for awards in 4 categories. Program of the contest Short Waves Festival includes international categories, in which we will see 57 films from 36 countries, selected from over 700 entries.


For the 11th time, rich program will fire up your imagination, forcing you to deeper contemplation. This year's motto is OUTSIDE THE BOX and is focusing mostly on South-East Asia, which is not obvious choice when it comes to the films. Slogan's purpose is making to look further into the future of the cinema itself and this is what we will talk about, during educational meetings and discussion panel for the industry.

Festival takes place in several places in Poznań, all which are connected with theatre, cinema or other visual arts. Mornings are perfect for Short Breakfast Club, and in the evening you are invited to the festival's club House, located on Szkolna Street.


Apart from the contest you will find additional screenings like "Oscar" nominations, kids panel, shows for deaf people and much more. Interesting point could be also Random Home Cinema, which are intimate screenings in Poznań inhabitants' houses. Titles of films are being kept as a secret until very last minutes.
