Seattle Polish Film Festival November 4-5-6-11-12-13

There will be no OKO film in November, but plenty of opportunities to see Polish films, as the 19th Annual Seattle Polish Film Festival (SPFF) is coming to town....


SPFF runs November 4-5-6 and November 11-12-13 (two consecutive weekends) at the newly remodeled SIFF Cinema at the Uptown,  located 511 Queen Anne Avenue North, Seattle.  Tickets are $10 at the door.

The Festival’s feature movie is Black Thursday set to show on Sunday, November 6 at six o’clock p.m. This film will be followed by a Question and Answer panel discussion and a second film, Poland in Freedom.

For the full schedule and extras - Nov. 6th reception with director Antoni Krauze, producer Kazimierz Beer, actress Ewa Kasprzyk and producer Jakub Michalski;  2-for-1 ticket offer and more -  go to the Festival website at:  http://www.polishfilms.org/

Most movies listed are recent and contemporary, but a few oldies thrown too ( CAREER OF NIKOS DYZMA, 2002; MADAME CURIE, 1947) +  several great looking documentaries...

See you there!
