    The 21st edition of the Polish Film Festival Kinoteka

    Poland’s diverse film culture returns this March with Kinoteka. Awards-winning films are a highlight of this year’s program of the 21st edition of the Polish Film Festival Kinoteka.

    The line-up of 15 films will include works from across his directing career. The retrospective will offer the chance to get better acquainted with the output of a phenomenal director whose latest production, EO, has attracted widespread critical acclaim and made headlines in both the UK and US.

    “Organised by the Polish Cultural Institute and supported by the Polish Film Institute, the KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival will return to cinema screens for its 21st edition from 9 March to 27 April 2023, presenting an exciting line-up that spans over 60 years of Polish cinema.

    Showcasing a finely curated selection of extraordinary new features, many of them premieres for the UK, the festival simultaneously explores the depth of Polish cinema’s past with exceptionally presented screenings of classic films from some of the country’s most renowned filmmakers, including Jerzy Skolimowski who will be in attendance for a season dedicated to his filmography at BFI Southbank. 

    Skolimowski’s latest sensation EO (2022) has been nominated for Best International Feature at the 2023 Academy Awards, and this season encompasses the career of a Polish master who is still at the top of his game after over 60 years behind the camera. With its diverse programme of compelling and challenging cinema, Kinoteka continues to explore the innovative filmic output Poland has to offer through screening events, special presentations, guest-led intros, Q&As, workshops and more.” (
