Press releases 2018-01-16

 

Polish documentary films represented by KFF Sales & Promotion will be shown in January at five international film festivals in Europe and America, including Sundance Film Festival.

The audience of one of the most important international film events - Sundance Film Festival - on January 19th will have a chance to see a short documentary made by Monika Kotecka and Karolina Poryzała. "Volte" is a short story about irreversible changes that growing up brings.

Only two days later the Slamdance Festival, which was founded over 20 years ago by the filmmakers themselves as an alternative for Sundance, will present "Icon" by Wojciech Kasperski. A moving film about a psychiatric hospital in Siberian countryside, which won the Golden Hobby-Horse at the Krakow Film Festival, was invited to the Documentary Features competition. 15 films will compete for a title of the best Slamdance documentary, only 4 of them from Europe.

In the last week of January Marcin Borchardt's film about the uncanny family of Beksińskis will be shown for the first time in Italy and Scandinavia. " THE BEKSIŃSKIS. A Sound and Picture Album" is in the programme of the Trieste Film Festival, which this year will present a few more Polish productions: "Over the Limit" by Marta Prus, "Runners" by Łukasz Borowski and "The Prince and the Dybbuk" by Piotr Rosołowski and Elwira Niewiera. Swedish audience will have a chance to see Borchardt's documentary even three times during the Göteborg Film Festival.

On January 26th the MiradasDoc Festival will begin in Tenerife. The festival will present five Polish short documentaries: "One Two Zero" by Anna Pawluczuk, "Collection" by Marcin Polar, "Volte" by Monika Kotecka and Karolina Poryzała, "Dust" by Jakub Radej and "Between Us" by Maciej Miller.
