American Film Festival starts in Wrocław

Eighty-eight US films will be screened during the 9th American Film Festival starting in Poland's western city of Wrocław. Fifty-seven productions will be shown in Poland for the first time.

According to organisers, the American Film Festival is an opportunity to see Oscar-nominated films as well as productions by independent artists.

The festival will open with the screening of "A Star is Born," directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Lady Gaga and the film director.

The American Film Festival is an opportunity to see U.S. films that are made outside the mainstream and Hollywood business plans. The programme includes festival hits (e.g., Sundance or Tribeca) that present an alternative approach to cinema.

Among the films to be screened at the 9th American Film Festival there will be, among other productions, the latest work by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Elephant) entitled "Don’t Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot," starring Joaquin Phoenix, "Her Smell" directed by Alex Ross, and "The Sisters Brothers" directed by Jacques Audiard.

The programme of the festival, which will end on Oct. 28, also envisages meetings with film directors and producers.
