This is a copy paste from the Krakow FF website of today:

The 60th Krakow Film Festival invites you to screenings of award-winning films at the Pod Baranami Cinema in Krakow!

The pioneering decision to organize this year’s entire Krakow Film Festival program on the web was a success! The virtual cinema screening rooms has been packed to the brim from the first day of the festival! An enthusiastic, numerous audience participates in meetings with the creators and special live events. The organizers receive thanks and praises coming from all over the world. The Krakow Film Festival has prepared a unique surprise for the viewers. On the last day of the film holiday, you are invited the cinema!

Traditionally, on Sunday, the last day of the festival, the organizers invite the audience to an unforgettable marathon of films awarded in all festival competitions. This year will be no dofferent. Sunday screenings in the virtual cinema will start at 11.00 a.m. CET and will last until late evening. The last tickets are waiting for viewers.

The Krakow Film Festival decided to immediately react to the lifting of some restrictions on cinema activities and invite the audience to screenings of the winning films on 7th of June and have the audience fill all the rooms of the friend Pod Baranami Cinema. Thus, KFF will become the first festival in Poland realized entirely online and in the cinema!

We have often said that despite the great excitement with the new formula of this year’s festival, we can’t wait to get back to the cinemas. We are happy that this can happen much earlier than we thought. Thanks to this, the finale of our festival will be truly unique and will certainly go down in history, emphasizes Olga Lany, spokeswoman for the Krakow Film Festival.

Screenings in the cinema halls of the Krakow Pod Baranami Cinema (at the Main Square and in the Małopolska Garden of Arts) will start in parallel with the virtual screenings – at 11.00. Tickets are PLN 15 and they will only be available at and at the cinema ticket offices.
