Splat!FilmFest 2020

We are pleased to announce that the 6th edition of Splat!FilmFest – the most rebellious film festival in Poland, will play on your emotions and pump the heart beat ONLINE: from 1st to 14th December 2020.




We are a member of prestigious The Méliès International Festivals Federation (before European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation).

Splat!FilmFest – International Fantastic Film Festival is the biggest genre film festival in Poland. We’ve been scaring the audience since 2015. Splat!FilmFest has two editions, in Lublin and in Warsaw. Our mission is to present dark, brutal, wild, and beautiful cinema.

The core of our programme is made up of premiere screenings of the best and most important genre films from all around the world which are not yet in distribution in Poland. We reveal uncompromising, bold, and blood red cinema to the Polish audience. The majority of the films are Polish premieres of features shot in Europe and all around the world.

We don’t hold back on brutal thrillers, dark dramas, bloody black comedies, animations, or utterly insane films. We value variety. A solid dose of horror masterpieces from all four corners of the world mixed with some cult classics sends a lovely chill down our spines and makes our hearts beat faster too.

We go an extra mile when it comes to the festival’s setting and its eerie atmosphere, which will make all those brave enough to participate shiver with fear. Carl Gustav Jung said that “one does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious”. And we fully agree.

“We don’t want false, polished, slick films – we prefer them rough, unpolished, but alive; we don’t want rosy films – we want them the colour of blood.” (The Film-makers’ Cooperative, 1962)
