Warsaw Film Festival

Warsaw Film Festival

The Warsaw Film Festival (WFF) is organized by the Warsaw Film Foundation in Warsaw, Poland. Its aim is to present the best films from all over the world to Polish and international audience, and to encourage better communication and understanding between people living in different countries and of different cultural backgounds. WFF is accredited by FIAPF (www.fiapf.org) as a competitive non specialized film festival. At WFF we present films made to be screened at theaters.

 

Last year’s Festival program included films from fifty nine countries of the world. Over the past thirty years we have screened several thousand films for over a million viewers.
