Kraków Film Festival to kick off on Sunday

Film aficionados will have a chance to see almost 250 films from Poland and abroad during the Kraków Film Festival, which starts in the southern city on Sunday.

During eight days of the festival audiences will be able to see movies in four different categories.

Screenings will be accompanied by a wide range of events, such as workshops, exhibitions, and concerts by artists such as Voo Too, Maciej Maleńczuk and Mikołaj Trzaska.

The festival opens with the screening of a documentary called „Wind. A Documentary Thriller” by Michal Bielawski, which according to the festival’s website is ”a film about the foehn mountain wind – one of the most unpredictable elements in the Polish mountains.”

Krzysztof Gierat, director of the Krakow Film Festival said: „At the opening of the festival, we always choose a spectacular film that will grab the audience and encourage them to stay in the cinema for the whole week.”

“Wind. A Documentary Thriller is particularly close to us, because we can feel the gusts of the foehn wind even here in Krakow,” he added.

This year’s festival has a section focusing on Finland, highlighting the latest documentary and short films from that country and a selection of Finnish student films.

Details of screenings can be found at www.krakowfilmfestival.pl.
