‘The Polish Institute is bringing new Polish films from the years 2012-2014 including the Oscar candidate from Poland Ida by Pawel Pawlikowski. We are also celebrating KrzysztofKieslowski’s Decalogue as this year marks the 25th anniversary of the series.

‘The great film maker’s retrospective will be shown at IFFI Goa as well,’ says Anna Tryc-Bromley, Director, Polish Institute, New Delhi.

The Festival will kick off in Mumbai on 19 November and draw to a close in Delhi on 12 December. The two-city Festival is also split into two parts: the first, called Polish Cinema Now is focused on contemporary Polish cinema, and features some of the most recent film successes, including Andrzej Jakimowski’s highly-acclaimed Imagine, which opens the Delhi leg of Kinoteka in the presence of the director himself on 2 December, and that of his wife Ewa Jakimowska who worked on the film’s production design.

Other films in this section are also highly-rated such as Ida, which has been nominated for next year’s Oscars in the Best Foreign Language Film category . The second part of the Festival is a tribute to arguably Poland’s best known film director – Krzysztof Kieslowski. The Decalogue series, and on the occasion the first four episodes from it will be screened  as part of a Krzysztof Kieslowski Retrospective.
