The festival kicks off on Thursday in the south-western city of Wrocław and runs until August 5.
The event starts with a screening of Lebanese director’s Nadine Labaki’s Capharnaum, which won praise at Cannes.
The movie follows 12-year-old Zain, who lives with his parents and siblings in a seedy part of Beirut and who sues his parents for the fact that he was born.
New Horizons describes itself as a festival of “cinema visionaries, adamant artists, brave enough to follow their own path against the trends and to talk about the most important matters, using their own, unique language.”
