Though his life was cut woefully short, Andrzej Munk has left a body of work that remains as fascinating today as it was when it was first released. The New Horizons retrospective offers a chance to see all of it.

James Benning's latest film, 20 Cigarettes, is a break from his series of landscape portraits, focussing instead on the myriad details of the human face. It is another fascinating work by a unique filmmaker who defies any easy categorisation.

Nanni Moretti has made a film about the Pope. But anyone expecting a splenetic attack on the Vatican may be surprised by a this gentle comedy that, for the most part, is content to poke fun.

As the sun sets on the 11th edition of the New Horizons Film Festival, just what have we learned? Well, that Wroclaw is a beautiful place but trying to predict the weather is as futile as telling Lars Von Trier to behave himself. That Nick Cave and Grinderman do indeed rock and that the ringing in the ears will most likely subside sometimes next year. That going to bed at 4am and getting up at 7am to start all over again is a completely normal thing. And that cinema is still one the most diverse art forms in the world, with New Horizons still managing to bring an eclectic set of films that will appeal to audiences of all tastes.

Among this year's retrospectives is a programme that offers a Soviet take on a very American genre: the Western. Included in the line-up are Nikita Mikhalkov's Leone-influenced debut, At Home Among Strangers, a Stranger at Home and The Seventh Bullet which, like so many Red Westerns of the late 1960s and early 1970s, borrowed heavily from The Magnificent Seven.

In addition to its central role as Poland's largest showcase for a wealth of films from around the world, New Horizons also offers a number of platforms for industry delegates. Now in its second year, New Horizons Studio, gives up-and-coming talent the opportunity to glean essential information from key industry personal.
