Now in its 13th year, the NY Polish Film Fest (May 2 - 7, 2017) will be paying tribute to Polish director Andrzej Wajda with a gala screening of his final film, Afterimage. The film, a biopic of painter Władysław Strzemiński, will be held at the Directors Guild of America (110 West 57th Street, New York, NY) with an introduction and live appearance by Martin Scorsese. The screening is in cooperation with the Wajda Film School in Warsaw (which Wajda founded) celebrating its 15th anniversary- the NYPFF will present a selection of its students’ short, documentary, and first feature projects.
The NYPFF will include screenings of some of the best new films from Poland, including The Last Family by Jan P. Matuszyński, United States of Love by Tomasz Wasilewski, and the Polish blockbuster comedy Singles Planet by Mitja Okorn at the Anthology Film Archives (32 2nd Avenue).
In conjunction with the NYPFF, Columbia University Film Professor Annette Insdorf will introduce a screening of Wojciech Has’s How to be Loved, which the Museum of Modern Art will present daily from April 29 to May 4 (together with his first feature The Noose).
