Transatlantyk Festival

The 4th annual Transatlantyk International Film and Music Festival will be held in Poznań from August 8-14, 2014. The Festival features outstanding films and music from all around the world, hundreds of screenings and numerous concerts, as well as legendary and young artists, representatives from all film and music professions. Transatlantyk is intended to be a new artistic platform aimed at building a stronger relationship between society, art and the environment through music and movies. It strives to inspire discussions on current social issues. Founded and directed by Academy Award-winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, Transatlantyk is intended to be both Glocal (local in actions and identity, while at the same time global in terms of understanding the consequences and context of its actions) and Open.

At this year’s Festival, professor and feminist activist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak will receive the 2014 Transatlantyk Glocal Hero Award. Also, winners in the Transatlantyk Film Music Competition and Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest will be revealed.
