The 14th edition of the Kinoteka Polish Film Festival opens today in London, bringing a selection of screenings, workshops, exhibitions and masterclasses to the city.
The festival will focus this year on the work of three prominent Polish filmmakers — Jerzy Skolimowski, Agnieszka Holland and Andrzej Żuławski.
Notably, the programme will feature Jerzy Skolimowski’s latest film, 11 Minutes, as the Opening Night Gala, as well as curated retrospectives of Skolimowski, Holland and Żuławski’s work.
Kinoteka is also set to host a New Polish Cinema strand, showcasing a selection of popular and critically acclaimed contemporary Polish films from the last year. The festival’s closing gala will see a screening of Janusz Morgenstern’s Goodbye, See You Tomorrow (1960, dir. Janusz Morgenstern) followed by a swing dance party with the Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet.
Kinoteka is presented by the Polish Cultural Institute in London in partnership with Pola Arts Foundation and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute.
The 14th Kinoteka Polish Film Festival will take place from 7 — 29 April at venues around London. A full programme can be found here.
