Last year’s focus on Poland did not prevent the organisers of Filem'on, the International Film Festival for Young Audiences, which has already reached its 11th editon, from including two Polish feature films and one episode of a serial in the programme! Behind the Blue Door by Mariusz PALEJ is in the running for a prize in the 'kids' competition, Strawberry Days by Wiktor ERICSSON in the 'teens' competition, and an episode of the series Hug Me by Mateusz Jarmulski will be shown as a part of the short film competition "Best of TV". In addition to this, Iwona POMIANOWSKA will be giving workshops for children on the theme of virtual reality.

Wojtek, 15, travels from Poland with his parents to a farm to pick strawberries. Against all odds he forms a connection with the farmer’s daughter.
