18th New Horizons International Film Festival

The New Horizons IFF presents mainly arthouse cinema. This is a festival of cinema visionaries, adamant artists, brave enough to follow their own path against the trends and to talk about the most important matters, using their own, unique language. Festival will take a place in the New Horizons Cinema, which is just a few minutes walk from Patio Hotel ***.
