The festival starts 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.”

Britain’s Labour Party has undergone a kind of gravitational collapse. Its fringes have fallen into its center, forming a black hole that is a maelstrom of anti-Semitism. Hard to imagine that only a decade ago it was the most mainstream of parties. Its leader Tony Blair preached a mixture of social justice and free markets. The speed with which Labour has fallen to extremists should serve as a wake-up call.
