FESTIVALS Poland

Travelling European Cinema

by 

Travelling European Cinema

To promote European cinema, especially films that have difficulty finding audiences in Poland: this is the main objective of the organisers of the 11th European Cinema Festival, which begins today in Warsaw. This year the travelling festival will take place in seven Polish cities through June 4.

As part of the event, audiences will be able to see 30 films. Twelve recent European productions, never before screened in Poland, have been chosen to feature in competition. Twelve other recent films that have yet to find a distributor will be presented as part of the Panorama of European Cinema. A third section, entitled Open Borders, includes a presentation of six films made as co-productions. The theme of the section is the role of Europe in the world today. An additional section, Masters of European Cinema, will take place in Warsaw, where the public can see films by Forman, Fassbinder, Pasolini, Tarkovsky, Kieślowski and others.
