18th European Film Festival
7th - 11th September 2021.


  • We are honoured to announce that we’re opening a film selection to the main contest of 18th European Film Festival Integration You and Me. We’re waiting for the applications till 1st May 2021.
  • The 17th European Film Festival Integration You and Me has come to an end. Statuettes and distinctions have gone to their laureates. At the closing ceremony we showed the last film of this year's edition of the Festival – a non-contest Norwegian film 'Hope' with a message so that this optimistic title of the film was a motto for all of us for the foreseeable future.
  • 4th November 2020
    The second day of the Festival began seemingly like every year. At 9.30 a.m. we started contest film screenings in Alternatywa cinema. We are glad that the audience had an opportunity to come to Koszalin Public Library, watch the films and vote in the audience contest.

Festival's 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.
