Returning to the capital for a 12th successful year, the KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival presented by the Polish Cultural Institute in association with the festival sponsor, MyFerryLink and supported by the Polish Film Institute, brings a bumper edition (24th April – 30th May) to audiences across London and the UK, with a five week celebration of the best of Polish Cinema, music and visual arts. This year’s programme offers an inspiring, diverse choice of screenings, including UK premieres, exhibitions, concerts, interactive workshops and masterclasses.

This year, KINOTEKA invites you to rediscover the amazing work of painter, sculptor and filmmaker Walerian Borowczyk (1923-2006) with the first major UK retrospective celebrating his prolific body of work, focusing on his artwork, early shorts, ground breaking animations and live-action features, many of which have been rarely seen or previously unseen in the UK and have been fully restored.

Career Retrospective “Cinema of Desire, The Films of Walerian Borowczyk” runs throughout May at BFI Southbank and the exhibition “Walerian Borowczyk: The Listening Eye” takes place at the ICA Fox Reading Room from 20 May-29 June.
