About T-Mobile’s festival

Along with the Warsaw International Film Festival, New Horizons has grown to become one of the most influential film festivals in Poland in the 21st century. A central part of the film festival is its Audience Award. Audiences can vote for films in three categories: New Horizons, Polish Short Films and European Short Debuts. The winner of the New Horizons Audience Award is guaranteed distribution in Poland. Films previously shown at the festival include Michael Haneke's Palm D'Or winner “The White Ribbon”, Francis Ford Coppola's “Tetro” and Pedro Almodovar's “The Skin I Live In”. New Horizons also hosts annual retrospectives at each film festival. In the past, this has included the work of French film director Jean-Luc Goddard and Monty Python member-turned-film director Terry Gilliam.
