ABOUT KINOTEKA FESTIVAL

about

KINOTEKA, the annual celebration of Polish Cinema, returns to the capital for an extended bumper 13th edition. On offer there is an enticing mix of film, music and visual arts with an outstanding selection of screenings; UK premieres, curated retrospectives, exhibitions, concerts, interactive workshops, industry masterclasses and special guests encompassing all aspects of Polish film culture. KINOTEKA is presented by the Polish Cultural Institute in London in partnership with DFDS Seaways, Pola Arts Foundation and Stock Spirits, and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute.

This year KINOTEKA is partnering with Filmhouse Edinburgh and BFI Southbank on an exciting new collaboration for the UK tour of Martin Scorsese Presents Masterpieces of Polish Cinema. 21 masterpieces, chosen by Scorsese himself, all brilliantly restored and digitally rem astered to 2K resolution. The season showcases films made during a particularly fertile and creative time in post-war Poland, by directors such as Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Zanussi, Andrzej Munk, Jerzy Kawalerowicz, Wojciech Jerzy Has, Aleksander Ford, Krzysztof Kieślowski, and others.

The ICA plays host to KINOTEKA’s New Polish Cinema strand from 10th April with a selection of both popular and critically acclaimed contemporary Polish films from the last year. KINOTEKA also showcases the breadth of original, innovative documentary that has come out of Poland: Wojciech Wiszniewski Rediscovered, Paweł Pawlikowski’s early documentaries, and works of emerging Polish documentary filmmakers, Aneta Kopacz and Tomasz Śliwiński who have been Oscar® nominated for this year’s Best Documentary Short Film category.

In conjunction with Martin Scorsese presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema, KINOTEKA and BFI Southbank will host an exhibition of original poster artwork celebrating the films of legendary director Andrzej Wajda. Tate Modern will screen The Performer by Łukasz Ronduda, a dynamic story full of punk energy based on the life of Oskar Dawicki, one of the most original contemporary Polish artists currently working, who will play himself…

This year, KINOTEKA will draw to a close with a special screening of cult Polish comedy The Cruise (1970) at the ICA (29th May), to mark Second Run’s DVD release. Taking inspiration from the film’s subject, festivities continue with an authentic boat ride on the Thames, for a 70’s-themed interactive performance created by immersive UK theatre group Gideon Reeling, with live jazz by Obara International and DJ set to close the evening.
