Like every year, music events are a very important part of the Festival. And like every year, music will be present not only at the Festival Club, but at the Wrocław Opera, too, where silent films with live music will be shown. Guy Maddin's film Brand Upon the Brain! will be screened with music created live by foley artists, with a narrator and orchestra. Geoff Smith will play at the screening of the oldest preserved full-length animated film in the history of cinema: The Adventures of Prince Achmed (Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed) directed by Lotte Reiniger (1926) and the screening of Sir Arne's Treasure (Herr Arnes pengar) by Mauritz Stiller will be accompanied by a performance of Leszek Możdżer's Trio.

For the second time, the Festival Club will be hosted by the Wrocław Arsenal. Last year, the festival audience loved both the selection of performers and the venue where concerts were held. It should be emphasised that the ERA NEW HORIZONS IFF / Festival Club received the Aktivist magazine's "Nocny Marek" award for Event of the Year 2008. In previous years, this award had gone to organisers of the Festival Open'er and other outstanding events.

Over 11 days, as many as 25 extraordinary bands and projects will play. This year, the Festival's music scene will be somewhat different. The Festival Club will be taken over by artists from the countries in focus at ENH 2009: Canada, Sweden and Hungary. You will have a unique opportunity to hear (for the first time in Poland in many cases) the best Canadian DJs, leaders of Swedish experimental music or Hungarians of astonishing originality! The artists will offer varied sounds: from dance and electronic music to rock and acoustic work. We have also planned performances by legends of alternative music: Lydia Lunch and Mark Stewart, whose creative work has inspired many contemporary artists. As always, free from any genre restraints, we have selected the most intriguing and the best pieces of world music, as the quality of the presented projects is crucial to us. We believe that audiences will be captivated at what they hear this year.

Nocny Marek" award for Event of the Year - Music Scene of the Era New Horizons Festival

The Era New Horizons

Festival now forms a constant part of the cinema-lovers' itinerary. For some time, it has also drawn the attention of those who love independent music and ambitious electronics. This year, the organisers have invited established artists of the Ninja Tune production company (Coldcut, Skalpel), but they have also dared to invite the experimenter Mathew Herbert and his Big Band, dub-step artists (such as Kode9) who still form the avant-garde of the world electronic scene. This is further proof that you can promote music innovations in Poland, too. Let the public see that new does not necessarily mean impossible to understand or hermetically closed.
