Sundance Partners With Polish Film Festival
Poznan's Transatlantyk Festival will feature a selection of films from the Park City event.
WROCLAW, POLAND – The Sundance Film Festival is extending its international partnerships to Poland.
The fourth edition of Poznan's Transatlantyk Festival, which opens next week, will for the first time feature some of the top films screened at Sundance in recent years.
The "Sundance at Transatlantyk" program will show features and documentaries that have won awards at the U.S. festival alongside those that have caught the eye of audiences and reviewers, Poznan festival organizers say.
Movies due to screen in the program this year include Nick Cave's autobiographical adventure 20,000 Days on Earth, Mike Cahill's spiritually inclined sci-fi feature I Origins, which opened the Karlovy Vary film festival in the Czech Republic earlier this month, and Anton Corbijn's thriller A Most Wanted Man.
Cave's film is also screening this week at another Polish festival, called T-Mobile New Horizons, in Wroclaw.
The third Sundance London Festival, which brings some of the programming of the Park City, Utah, event to the British capital, took place in April.
Transatlantyk runs Aug. 8 to 14 in Poznan.
