COLD WAR (Zimna wojna)
dir. Paweł Pawlikowski
Academy Award-winning director returns with a passionate love story set against the backdrop of the Cold War years.
A CAT WITH A DOG (Jak pies z kotem)
dir. Janusz Kondratiuk
A story inspired by true events. When the elder brother, Andrzej, suddenly falls ill, despite their differences and a wall of misunderstandings that has grown between them, his younger brother is taking it upon himself to care for his brother in need.
MUG (Twarz)
dir. Małgorzata Szumowska
A modern fairy tale about a person with a stigma. Filmmakers raise questions about tolerance, the limits of freedom and the meaning of roots.
PARDON (Ułaskawienie)
dir. Jan Jakub Kolski
The film is embedded in the dramatic memories of post-war Poland. The story of a soldier’s parents told from the perspective of their 17-year-old grandson.
dir. Filip Zylber
It's a funny and moving look at modern relationships. Connections of people, who have stopped believing in affection, though in the depths of their hearts, are just waiting for such true love.
SILENT NIGHT (Cicha noc)
dir. Piotr Domalewski
Adam, who lives and works abroad, visits his family home in the Polish provinces on Christmas Eve. At first, he keeps the real reason for his visit to himself, but it isn’t long before he starts letting one relative after another in on his plans.
