  •   Kamil Czeszel, a boy singing Niemen’s songs in such a way that you get chills; a music-word hilarious project by Czesław Mozil and at the end the Beatles from Polkowice who make everyone dance. We’re inviting for Festival’s concerts!  
  •   Similarly to last year’s edition, photographers invited to participate in the project have visited their models in Szczecin – Mariusz Król, Chełmno – Wojciech Szwej and Kielce – Stanisław Składanowski.  
  • We are really glad to announce that our special guest of the 16th EFF Integration You and Me will be Robert Więckiewicz. This eminent actor will meet the audience on 5th September shortly before the screening of 'A Cat with a Dog'. We can’t wait!

Festival's Idea

 

Idea

 

European Film Festival Integration You and Me has connected the topic of disability with film art for 16 years and has proven that life can begin several times. We have learnt this from the Festival’s guests, people with disabilities - artists, sports people, travellers, journalists, designers. The Festival is an artistic enterprise but it also has a great social meaning as it triggers discussions concerning the environment of people with disabilities and the process of integration. We are the Festival of open heads, sensitive hearts and positive energy.

From 2003 to 2019 we showed almost 700 films - important, wise, brave ones and took our audience on a trip around the world. The Butterfly awards in the film contest were given to e.g.: ‘The Sea Inside’ by Alejandro Amenábar, ‘The Diving Bell and the Butterfly’ by Julian Schnabel, ‘Intouchables’ by Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano,’The Girl from the Wardrobe’ by Bodo Kox, ‘Life Feels Good’ by Maciej Pieprzyca and ‘Our Curse’ by Tomasz Śliwiński. Every year in Koszalin we host actors, directors, screenwriters, film critics, lecturers, people associated with culture and the media.
