Legacy and Oblivion; Cliff Martinez, former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, composer of
minimalist arrangements for Drive, Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon, combining
electronica and symphonic music; and Johann Johannsson, the prominent contemporary
composer, writer of the Oscar-nominated score for The Theory of Everything and suites for
Sicario and Prisoners.

Animations, Indiana Jones and The Witcher - three great concerts at the monumental

Powell (How to Train Your Dragon, Ice Age 2: Meltdown) and Harry Gregson-Williams (Shrek,
The Chronicles of Narnia), as well as pieces from Pocahontas, Frozen, Smurfs and Angry
Birds: The Movie.

Raiders of the Lost Ark with live music composed by John Williams will be shown on
29th May, on the 35th anniversary of its premiere. The famous Raiders March which opens
the soundtrack is the second most recognisable film motif of all time, surpassed only by
the Star Wars theme.

On 30th May, the festival finale will feature the Video Game Show: The Witcher 3: Wild
Hunt - a joint project by the Krakow Festival Office and CD Projekt RED, publisher of the
cult game. The Witcher is one of the most recognisable video game characters in the world,

in the first 6 weeks, making it the most recognisable Polish brand in the world.
