The 9th Annual Polish Film Festival in Los Angeles (April 24 – May 4, 2008)

Apr 18, 2008

Each year, the Polish Film Festival in Los Angeles screens the finest selection of contemporary Polish cinema, including features, documentaries, as well as live-action and animated shorts. The Festival’s goal is to provide an exciting venue for Polish filmmakers and actors to share their talents with American audiences. The Festival’s jurors and special guests bring together some of Poland and Hollywood’s finest talent.

This year’s festival will begin on Thursday, April 24, 2008, with an Opening Night Gala held at the prestigious Directors Guild of America Theatre. The evening will feature an awards ceremony, including the debut of the Pola Negri Award and, fresh off its Polish premiere, a screening of Tomasz Konecki’s Lejdis. The Opening Night’s ceremonies will be followed by an exciting week of screenings at Laemmle's Sunset 5 and the festival’s last three days will be dedicated to a slate of documentaries at the Egyptian Theatre (in collaboration with the American Cinemateque) and a series devoted to Polish Television Theater (in collaboration with the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television).

Also awarded during the Opening Night Gala will be the Hollywood Eagle Award, Hollywood Documentary Eagle Award, Hollywood Animation Eagle Award and Kodak Student Award. This year’s jury panels are as follows. Features and Student Etudes: Bernard Hiller, David Ward, Mark Harris, Ron Masak and Theodoer Bikel. Documentaries: Betsy McLane, Elaine Archer, Sandra Ruch.
