Polish actors are turning heads in the US by picking up a number of high-profile roles.
Kieślowski and Wajda are household names of Polish movie industry, acknowledged worldwide for their depiction of Poland’s political and social transformation.
"Ethiopiques - Rebellion of the Soul" by Maciek Bochniak and "Runners" by Łukasz Borowski will represent Poland at the Margaret Mead Film Festival in New York.
The 19th edition of the Polish Film Festival began with a screening of the film "303 Squadron. The True Story", in Hollywood, the film capital of America. The showing took place at the legendary Egyptian Theatre.
The film is based on a book by local historian Witold Dąbrowski, who discovered microfilms in the National Remembrance Institute with letters about the phenomenon that had been intercepted by the security service. At its peak, around 10,000 people were thronging the area each evening, coming from all over the city and from across Poland. TFN’s Stuart Dowell attended the film’s premiere and spoke to witnesses.
Kot and Wichłacz will join Helen Hunt in the seven-part ‘World of Fire’ series.
Eighty-eight US films will be screened during the 9th American Film Festival starting in Poland's western city of Wrocław on Oct. 23. Fifty-seven productions will be shown in Poland for the first time.
The actor’s family come from the highland village of Gorlice in south-east Poland and Soroczyński says he is a frequent visitor to the region.
From Polański to Wajda, TFN goes through the history of Polish film at the Oscars.
This year's 34th Warsaw Film Festival will feature 190 films (short, medium and full-length) and take place on October 12-21. The organisers have planned dozens of world, European and Polish premieres.
