The 17th Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival will be held from the 4th to the 13th of September 2020

Dear Festival Audience,

Millennium Docs Against Gravity is a festival which always places its viewers at the helm. Thus, we feel the urge to be both responsible and reasonable. Each year, we are visited by guests from around the world, we discuss with our spectators about documentary cinema and we broaden the horizons of our knowledge about the reality surrounding us. We cannot be mere bystanders watching as this reality unravels. It would be highly irresponsible in the light of governmental recommendations and the dynamics of the pandemic if we were to endanger our audience and guests by exposing them to a possible contact with the coronavirus.

With regards to the abovementioned, after a period of intense consultations and meticulous analysis of the situation, we have decided to postpone the 17th edition of the Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival from May to September. The festival will be held from the 4th to the 13th of September 2020 in Warsaw, Wroclaw, Katowice, Poznan and Bydgoszcz. We will announce the festival dates in Gdynia as soon as possible.

It’s thanks to our audiences that we have become one of the largest and most important documentary film festivals in the world, and definitely the most popular event of this kind in Poland. Last year we have made it to the list of 25 Coolest Film Festival in the World released by the prestigious American „MovieMaker” magazine.

We would like our 100 thousand strong audience to immerse itself into a festival, which will have the best programme in its history, in a safe environment. This is why the 17th Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival, which will include screenings of the most incredible films, Q&A's with outstanding guests, concerts, workshops and exhibitions, will take place at a later date.

We would like to underline our wholehearted appreciation for your support – the upcoming festival in September will be an extraordinary and beautiful event.

Artur Liebhart
Director of the Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival
