They’ll come to Lodz from drama schools from all over Poland – 4th year students of acting - to take part in the 36th Drama Schools’ Festival which takes place in Lodz from 14 to 20 May, 2018.

The final year acting students will get together at the turning point in their lives when one stage comes to an end and another one is about to begin. The presentation of their diploma plays on a real stage in front of their professors, colleagues and theatre buffs and critics is always a thrilling experience and a challenge. Their performance summing up four years of acting education will be a pass to the future professional career.

The Lodz Film School invites you to the Festival performances taking place on the stages of Nowy Theatre, Studyjny Theatre (which belongs to the Lodz Film School), and Akademicki Ośrodek Inicjatyw Artystycznych (Artistic Initiative Student Centre) from 14 to 20 May.

Apart from the four main Polish drama schools from Warsaw, Cracow, Wrocław and Lodz presenting their students’ diploma plays we will also host the students from those schools’ other than acting departments such as: Cracow School’s Muppet Department from Wrocław, Cracow School’s Dance Theatre Department from Bytom, and Warsaw Academy’s Muppet Department from Białystok.
