Practically all the foreign guests of the 1st International Joseph Conrad Literature Festival are connected with film. On the basis of their pieces, films were created, sometimes they themselves stood behind the camera, they also often cooperated with other creators as screenplay writers. That is why during the Festival we also invite you to the cinema.
