Polish Film and Cinema
Polish cinema has a long history going back as far as almost any country in Europe with the first cinema (kino) founded in Lodz (Łódź) in 1899. Today, there are cinemas in virtually every large town and city in Poland.
Here are three old images from our archive of cinemas during the Communist-era.
Notable Polish filmmakers / directors include: Roman Polanski, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Agnieszka Holland, Andrzej Wajda, and Andrzej Żuławski. With the best known Polish films (outside of Poland) probably: A Short Film About Love; The Three Colours trilogy; and the The Double Life of Veronique.
