WELCOME TO 2020 FESTIVAL!
The POLISH FILM FESTIVAL IN PERTH returns this spring with 6th edition of the event and a strong lineup of critically acclaimed films from renowned and up and coming Polish filmmakers.
The Festival opens on Thursday 29 October with one of the most expensive Polish film productions of all time. THE LEGIONS is an epic historical drama that follows a love triangle set against the backdrop of the heroic struggle of Polish Legions to win independence from Tsarist Russia.
Highlights of the program include:
CHARLATAN, a fascinating biopic by the three-time Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland of an exceptional Czech healer who cured thousands with plant-based remedies.
Brimming with jazz ICARUS. THE LEGEND OF MIETEK KOSZ by Maciej Pieprzyca, a drama inspired by the true story of blind piano prodigy Mietek Kosz, with music by one of the most acclaimed Polish jazz pianists and music composers, Leszek Możdżer.
25 YEARS OF INNOCENCE, a gripping new crime drama based on real events that shocked Poland and made headlines for many months about a man who had served 18 years in prison for murder before being found innocent.
