The section MUST SEE MUST BE contains films we have carefully selected for you, some of which even the most knowledgeable cinema enthusiasts might have missed among the plethora of films that are made every single year.

What makes the selected films stand out among others is the meticulous analysis of the topics that the modern cinema goers consider to be important, or their unique visual design. The section includes both films that will be shown for the first time, and those that merely just flashed through Polish cinemas and failed to receive the recognition they deserve.

In ‘My Favourite Cake’, the duo of Iranian filmmakers show a story of two elderly people in their seventies, who decide to overcome the schemes enforced in their country and live life to the full, every single day.

For the protagonists in ‘Memories of a burning body’, it takes years, before they finally break the taboos in their lives and discover their true feminine power.

‘Toll’ is a portrayal of a single mother, who decides to work with a local criminal gang, forced by the difficult financial situation she finds herself in.

In ‘Paradise is burning’, you will follow the story about three abandoned little girls, who try to feed lies to the local social care workers, so all three can stay together.

‘The Kingdom’ confronts us with the origin of a conflict tearing apart a small community in Corsica. It does not take long, before the conflict transforms into a brutal war.

‘Three Kilometres to the End of the World’, winner of this year’s Queer Palm in Cannes, is a story about looking for acceptance and understanding among members of a very conservative family.

‘Motel Destino’ is an erotic thriller in the vein of Brazilian cinema from the 1970s, which will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or and Queer Palm at the 77th Cannes Film Festival.

‘The Taste of Things’, featuring Juliette Binoche, is a unique combination of a romantic film and culinary cinema, which will take you back to the world parties and dishes taken straight from the 19th Century. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 77th Cannes Film Festival.

‘Last Summer’ is a perverse take on a love affair between a mature businesswoman and seventeen-year-old Theo.

‘There’s Still Tomorrow’ is a film dedicated to the power of women, and also to the complex human relations. The film combines humour with Italian ballad songs, and also tackles important social issues.

In ‘Ellipsis’, you see a story about a writer, who publishes his books under a pseudonym. One day, he gets a visit from a man claiming to be a journalist. The unannounced visit is just a beginning for the gripping events that will soon unfold.

‘Return to Reason’ is an experimental and surreal film project, which form is a reconstruction of the art by Man Ray, being visually and symbolically ravishing.

‘Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person’ is an unconventional comedy horror, which offers a completely new perspective on these bloodthirsty monsters.

‘The Boy and the Heron’ is the highly anticipated new animated film by Hayao Miyazaki about the power of imagination, interpersonal relations, and passing. We follow the story of young Mahito, who struggles to find a place for himself in the new reality.

We invite you to see a few unique films, which are thought-provoking and evoke a whole panorama of emotions.
