GrandOff: The most important initiative promoting independent Cinema in Poland

28 nov - 5 dic 2022

Brought to life in 2006 World’s Independent Cinema Awards GRAND OFF is a cultural event that draws attention to independent cinema and gives it a proper rank, seriousness and prestige. Most interesting independent productions from all over the world are subjected to preselection and typed by the professional Nomination Committee for awards in eleven categories: screenplay, director, picture, editing, scenography, actress, actor, best plot, documentary, animation and best polish movie. Nominated films are evaluated by an international jury formed by more than 80 film experts, theorists, directors, operators, editors, and actors from more than 30 countries.


"I've been honored to participate as a member of the Selection Committee in the last 10 editions of GrandOff. We would like to recognize GrandOff in a special section in CINEFIESTA and honor the Polish people for their courageous and humanitarian solidarity with the Ukrainian refugees."- Luis J. Cruz

You may not know it, but Lago is coming of age.

22-30 jul 2022

After eighteen long, difficult and tiring hurdles to overcome, we start again with an edition that decides to put the art of the moving image at the forefront: cinema. An art that in the last two years has been in difficulty, forced to relegate itself to our homes, to small screens in large spaces, or medium-sized screens in minimal spaces; with the impossibility of bringing us together, and entering into the darkness of the cinematic atmosphere. We invite you to enter barefoot into the shores of Lago. Choose your screen and take your seat, the party is about to begin.
