The IFI once again welcomes Kinopolis, Dublin’s Polish Film Festival, for its eighth annual edition. 

This year’s line-up, one of the Festival’s most varied, includes gritty social commentary from Wojciech Smarzowski (Traffic Department), examination of gender equality (Women’s Day), a thought-provoking depiction of a priest fighting his inner demons of sexuality and alcoholism (In the Name of . . .), a documentary on Polish free-form jazz (Love), and, in what always proves to be one of Kinopolis’ most popular slots, an animation showcase, which this year focuses on the beautiful work of Piotr Dumała. 

The IFI and Kinopolis are pleased to have Mr. Dumała visit the IFI to host this screening (November 9th, 12.00). We also welcome Andrzej Jakimowski, director of the Opening Film, Imagine (November 5th, 20.45), a tender and unusual love story, to present his film. We look forward to audiences enjoying this celebration of Polish cinema. 

For full programme details, please see the Festival’s website (www.kinopolis.com.pl). Watch the festival teaser.

Our thanks to Sabina Wasik for her assistance.
