“High Above the sky” selected for Ale Kino 2012 in Poznan! If you have never been to Poznan two animation festivals you should try to go. Both the museum and the main square are delightful, and you wont find a warmer welcome anywhere else!
The International Young Audience Film Festival Ale Kino! goes back to the 1960s. At first only national, in mid 1990s it was completely reorganised and became a first-class European event. It attracts the third generation of Poznań inhabitants, which translates to the audience of over 10,000 people each year. Ale Kino is one of two flagship festivals of the Children’s Art Centre (the other one being the Biennial of Art for Children).
In 2012 Ale Kino! received the Polish Film Institute award in the category of international film events, in 2008 in the category of young audience education, and in 2011 – the European Citizens’ Prize from the European Parliament.
In 2010 the Festival embarked on a tour around Poland. “Ale Kino! on Tour” is now available in little villages, whose young inhabitants seldom have the opportunity to encounter quality international film productions.
