Celebrate 101 years of Polish independence through film
The Kinoteka Polish Film Festival will return to Regent Street Cinema from the 4th - 7th April, showcasing a breadth of Polish creative talent. In tandem with this, 2019 is the year to celebrate 101 years of Polish independence, so the festival will bring an impressive array of award-winning films from Poland to London’s West End for four days only.
Sound interesting? Regent Street Cinema will be showcasing contemporary Polish filmmaking more specifically – with the chance to experience the humour of Paweł Maślona’s Panic Attack, the harsh realism of Piotr Domalewski’s Silent Night, or Filip Bajon’s epic costume drama The Butler.
