The Lubuskie Film Summer Festival takes place in Lagów, Poland in June. The Festival presents only feature films. Main prize of the competition is the Golden Grape Award.
Lubuskie Film Summer - Lagow was established in 1969 and, in the beginning, it was the only Polish Feature Film Festival in the country. Because of its form of seminars and open discussions, where everybody had the right to express their opinions in casual and uncontrolled atmosphere, the festival was not very welcomed by the communistic authorities. So the other Polish Feature Film Festival was created, with location in Gdansk, much more official and ostentatious. The Film Festival in Lagow was, in a way, in the shade of Gdansk (subsequent Gdynia) Festival, survived to a large extend thanks to initiative of the members of Film Culture Club in Zielona Gora and Polish Federation of Discussion Film Clubs and even more than before cultivating its distinctive, working and debatable character.
In answer to needs rising from the disintegration process, soon becoming the fall of the communism. Since 1990, the Lagow Festival has become the international festival that presents the pictures from the post-communist countries.
