An audience that is young also tends to be the most demanding. Young people readily spot insincere content and will not hesitate to express criticism or show they are bored. They also expect fair treatment both in language and aesthetics that resonates with their age group. For over six decades, the organisers of the Ale Kino! International Young Audience Film Festival have consistently identified films that meet these criteria. The festival's 41st edition is scheduled to take place from 26 November to 3 December.

The partnership between the City of Poznań and the Hungarian City of Győr has been going on for 15 years.

In addition to Poznań, Colmar from France, Miercurea-Ciuc from Romania, Dunajská Streda from Slovakia and Wuhan from China were present.

It is quite tempting to call the Grand Prix of Polish Choir Singing the "Champions League of Music". This distinguished competition, hosted in Poznań, selects its victor from a pool of laureates of esteemed national competitions. Participants gain invaluable learning opportunities, from which even the best of them can derive plentiful benefits. For the audience, this represents a chance to savour the performances of outstanding choirs.

Take on the role of city councillor and deliberate on issues of importance to the city? Why not! This was all made possible by the simulation game "Pimp Your Twin Town", which was conceived and organised by the German association Politk zum Anfassen e.V. The organisation has been running youth democracy and civic engagement projects since 2009. The "Pimp Your Twin Town" project is not just about strengthening city partnerships, building international friendships and the opportunity to travel to a neighbouring country. Above all, it's about learning about urban politics and experiencing agency and influence over your own city's development.

The Short Waves International Short Film Festival needs no introduction among dedicated cinephiles. Its fifteenth iteration is set to take place in Poznań, this time in its autumn rendition, spanning nearly a week from 14 to 19 November. Its motto is "Rethink/Rebuild".
