Transatlantyk Festival in Lódz is based on three pillars:
Film – presentation of the latest and the most important productions, awarded at prestigious film festivals (in Cannes, Berlin, Venice, or at Sundance Film Festival), retrospectives, documentaries, short films, and animated films, as well as visits of eminent and awarded film artists and guests from all over the world. Each edition of the Festival means over 100 films viewed during several hundred showings!
Music – the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, unique world-class compositors’ competitions addressed at young artists, concerts, and events at the Festival Club.
Education and other film and music events – a series of workshops, Master Classes, and discussion panels with great specialists, an extensive educational programme concerning film art, music, social issues, production, and distribution, with world-class professionals participating. The programme is addressed at people at all ages.
The Founder and the Director of the Festival is Oscar-winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.
