The 64th Krakow Film Festival will be held in Kraków’s cinemas from 26 May to 2 June 2024 and across Poland at the KFF VOD online streaming platform between 31 May and 16 June 2024.


With the beginning of October, the call for films for the 64th Krakow Film Festival has started. The organisers and selectors are eagerly awaiting short films and documentaries from all over the world. From among several thousand entries, approximately 200 of the most interesting titles are going to make it to be shown in Kraków’s cinemas to festival audience in late May and early June – and online throughout Poland.

"To us, beginning the process of accepting submissions for the next festival is like entering the new year. It’s the same emotions and expectations for returning masters and brilliant debutants. We expect the films to show us – as in a mirror – the most painful but also hopeful moments. Every choice comes with certain tension, because we are aware of the importance of each decision." – says Krzysztof Gierat, director of the Krakow Film Festival.
