Rebellious festival. Rebellious cinema. This is what we are looking for, after all everyone has a rebel inside.

Tofifest has got its own, exceptional programme feature. For us, the cinema that we present is the art creatively commenting on reality and being an integral part of it. This rebellliousness is what has been making Tofifest outstanding from other film festivals in Poland.

The 9th International Film Festival Tofifest invites to apply films for three competitive programme sections: two of them are international competitions and one is national. The existing rules are the same as the previous year.

The International Competition for 1st and 2nd films named ON AIR Competition mainly puts stress for European and Polish premiers. As the director of the festivals mentions, these films will have priority in the selection. Short Film Competition SHORTCUT invites the short forms from all over the world which lasts till 40 minutes. Polish Films presented in FROM POLAND Competition will present all faces of contemporary Polish movies.

As the amount of the films for three competitive section is limited the bests films which can’t be included into the competition will be presented in special section Out Of Competition.

The films will struggle for Grand Prix Awards Golden Angels. Special Award for the Best Director will be given only in ON AIR Competition.
