Polish Film Festival Sydney

May 22, 2022 @ 8:00 am - June 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

The Polish Film Festival Sydney returns this May and June with a  line-up of critically acclaimed films screening across two cinemas, Palace Norton Street and The Ritz Cinemas. The program brings two Australian premieres, six NSW premieres, and a broad selection of work by a new generation of incredibly talented Polish filmmakers.

Commencing on Sunday, May 22, the event will open with Polish-Irish comedy-drama I Never Cry (Jak najdalej stąd) from the Silent Night director Piotr Domalewski, who takes audiences to Dublin, where a rebellious teenager (Zofia Stafiej) is unexpectedly presented with a quick adulting lesson. Having already been shown at the San Sebastian Film Festival and many other festivals worldwide, the film also resonated with audiences in Western Australia, winning Audience Choice at the 7th Polish Film Festival in Perth.

Other highlights include Poland’s submission to the 94th Academy Awards, Leave No Traces, from director Jan P. Matuszynski, Thorsten Klein’s German-Polish co-production Adventures Of A Mathematician, and Juliusz Machulski’s 1981 cult heist classic Vabank.

The Polish Film Festival Sydne is organised with the financial support of Screen NSW as well the Polish Film Institute and under the honorary patronage of the Consulate General of Republic of Poland in Sydney. The event is also supported by Australia Study (Principal Sponsor), Migration Law Firm and Perfect Contracting (Major Sponsors) and Business Tax and Money House (Leadership Sponsor), Benefit Legal, and Karpinski & Co (Affiliate sponsors).
