This year, the WRO Art Center is the only Wroclaw-based partner of the On Art Film Festival, a film event which is comprised of an international competition and screenings of fiction and documentary films formally or thematically associated with art. The festival films explore a varied range of cultural and artistic developments, including video art, street art, music, dance, performance, etc.
Based on the collaboration of more than twenty partner art-house cinemas and art institutions, the Festival is a unique event in that it takes place simultaneously in ten cities across Poland: Bydgoszcz, Gdansk, Katowice, Cracow, Lodz, Rzeszow, Sopot, Warsaw, and of course Wroclaw.
Enjoy our WRO On Art screenings on Thursdays this July!
2nd July / 6 PM – Special screening preceding the official opening of the Festival!
Trzy sztuki w Antarktyce (Three Arts in Antarctica), dir. Bartosz Stróżyński, 2020, 57 min.
