The most interesting Polish films, awarded over the past month in Poland and all over the world, will be screened in Bucharest between November 18th and November 27th at the CinePolska festival, taking place at the Elvire Popesco festival.
“The 2016 films are, first of all, captivating histories about people faced with difficult choices, allowing the audience to get emotional, reflect and get entertained. Most of them take place during our time,” explained Agnieszka Skieterska, the director of the Polish Institute in Bucharest, which is organizing the event together with the Polish Filmmakers Association.
This edition, which runs under the motto “Histories in the Present”, opened with a concert by Polish group Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet in Control Club.
As a novelty, this year’s festival will run a program dedicated to children. The program was prepared together with the Kino w Trampkach Children and Youth Festival in Warsaw, and will be shown on November 27th. An animation workshop for children aged 8 to 16 will take place the morning of the same day. Attendance is based only on prior registration at www.culturapoloneza.ro. Places are limited.
Screenings take place November 19th and November 20th and November 25th to November 27th at the Elvire Popesco cinema. The animation workshop takes place in the same location, at the French Institute.
Tickets can be purchased at the box office of the Elvire Popesco cinema and at the Kyralina, Anthony Frost, Hecate and Humanitas bookstores.
Films are screened with Romanian subtitles. The films for children will be dubbed in Romanian.
The full program and information on the films can be checked here.
In the spring of 2017 CinePolska will reach other cities in Romania, and viewers will be able to see a selection of films shown this year.
