Take part in a new, annual celebration of audiovisual culture! Its first edition will be dedicated to digital storytelling, emerging narrative strategies and archives seen from a different, very personal point of view. Apart from live music shows, film screenings, debates and media workshops for creatives, there will be an exhibition of interactive installations and webdocs, as well as a local art project and an audiovisual picnic.
The play (A)pollonia, by Krzysztof Warlikowski, was published in its entirety at the international Google Cultural Institute. NInA thus joins a group of over sixty cultural institutions from across the globe that are participating in Google’s new project, Performing Arts.
The NInA Archives consist of thousands of analog and digital media holding important masterpieces of Polish culture, including films by Krzysztof Kieślowski, theater plays by Krystian Lupa, and Krzysztof Penderecki’s concerts.
