The 10th Anniversary Edition of NYPFF

This year the 10th Anniversary edition of The New York Polish Film Festival will take place at the Anthology Film Archives, presenting an eclectic program that reflects the diversity of styles and subjects of Poland's latest cinema. Many of the feature films presented at NYPFF are internationally acclaimed and hold awards from other renowned festivals. 

“Wałesa: Man of Hope” (Wałęsa: Czlowiek z nadziei) by Director Andrzej Wajda, Master of Polish Cinema (and our Festival’s Honorary Patron), is an amazing story of the eminent “Solidarity” leader. The film was Poland’s Academy Award submission this year.

“Papusza” by Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze is a poetic picture depicting the Roma poet. Set in stunning black & white cinematography. 

“Life Feels Good “ (Chce się żyć) by Maciej Pieprzyca won "Viewers Award" at Poland’s biggest film showcase in Gdynia in 2013.

“Floating Skyscarpers (Płynące wieżowce) by Tomasz Wasilewski introduced last year at Tribeca Film Festival, won “Best Debut” at Gdynia.

And “Loving” (Miłość) by Sławomir Fabicki with a duet of extraordinary actors (Julia Kijowska and Marcin Dorocinski) are among this year’s principal feature films presented at the 10th Anniversary NYPFF.
