Accompanying Events

Once more we invite you to take part in a TV series focused event, held during the MASTERCARD Off Camera Festival. Storytellers will take place in Krakow, on 29th of April – 2nd of May. It is an annual event dedicated to serialized narratives of all shapes and forms. It is a celebration of engaging stories, paying attention to the quality of storytelling, not only to the commercial potential of certain titles. It is a chance to present original, revolutionary episodic narratives, both adapted and original; an opportunity to encounter writers, producers, actors and actresses taking part in creating a nuanced, mutifaceted story and characters. Storytellers also allows us to speak of film franchises, narrative video games, episodic audiobooks, and any popular popcultural universes using different forms of storytelling. It provides a great space for workshops, and can be used for creating ellaborate stories, which will in return help inspire Polish creative industry, as well as help TV series fans to look deeper into the narrative world.

Film Village

The Film Village is a special area in Szczepański Square, accessed free of charge during the 16th edition of the Mastercard OFF Camera Festival between 28th April and 7th May. It is a place where all independent cinema lovers will be able to relax between the cinema screenings and enjoy numerous exceptional film-themed attractions. You can visit us every day for a cup of coffee from local coffee roaster Dobra Palarnia Kawy or a cool drink ON LEMON, as well as for interviews and meetings with Festival stars, which will be open to the public. You will also have a chance to get an autograph from your favorite actor or director and pose together at the Festival press wall.

Festival Club – HEVRE

This year’s festival club is the perfect place to talk about the films seen as part of Mastercard OFF CAMERA. But there’s more, as a special menu will be waiting there throughout the festival! Hevre is also participating in the Off Spots program, which means that by holding a festival pass or ticket and paying with Mastercard, you will receive a 15% discount. There are also two DJ parties in store on Fridays – April 28 and May 5.
