International Festival of Independent Cinema NETIA OFF CAMERA is one of the biggest events of this kind in the Central-Eastern Europe. NETIA OFF CAMERA is organised annually in Krakow. It centres on the independent cinema, brave both in terms of content and formal structure, which relies on gripping, fascinating stories. The most important part of the competition is Main Competition “Making Way” in which ten first and second features from all over the world compete for the Krakow Film Award. The award amounts to one hundred thousand dollars and is granted by the international Jury. What is more, the director of the winning film receives financing from the Polish Film Institute of one million zlotys for the production of his next film on condition that some of the shots to will be taken in Poland. The award donated by NETIA OFF CAMERA is one of the world’s biggest awards.

The Main Competition ‘Making Way’ is addressed to directors making their first steps. Ten movies from all over the world compete for the Krakow Film Award – and the 100 000 USD. Traditionally, the jury is headed by a Polish filmmaker, this year the invitation was accepted by Krzysztof Zanussi.

In the Polish Film Competition, we have 10 Polish films from last year competing for 100 000 PLN. In this category we also award the best actor and best actress prizes.

The Festival program has three new sections: “So Scary It Hurts” “Adults Only?” and “Breathless”. We’ll screen unconventional, genre-breaking horrors, look closely at extremes and passions, and talk about adulthood in a new and irreverent way.
