This spring the Polish Film Festival Sydney comes to Palace Norton Street for the very first time, bringing captivating Polish stories and the most talked-about films released theatrically within the last two years.
The Festival aims to present a range of exciting, contemporary, award-winning works and box office hits from renowned and up and coming Polish filmmakers. It creates a unique opportunity for the audience to experience the rich Polish culture and watch film productions that are rarely presented in Australian theatres.
The program comprises eight feature films, all screening in Sydney for the first time. The Festival will open on Saturday 26 October with the newest action spy thriller THE MESSENGER (Kurier), inspired by the incredible story of a real-life superhero – the legendary Courier from Warsaw. Highlights of the program also include animated masterpiece ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE, presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018 and based on a book by one of the greatest journalists of the 20th century, Ryszard Kapuściński, as well as the Australian Premiere of PIŁSUDSKI, the newly released biopic about Polish political leader Józef Piłsudski, considered by many to be the founding father of Second Polish Republic. The Festival will close with THE BUTLER, an epic tale spanning 45 years and inspired by true events surrounding one Prussian family and three nations inhabiting the former Polish-German borderland – Kashubs, Poles and Germans.
All films screen with English subtitles and will be shown only once, so book your tickets early.
