Polish Films at 2013 Monterrey IFF
Several Polish films co-financed by the Polish Film Institute will screen in competition at the Monterrey International Film Festival in Mexico, which runs from August 22 through September 1, 2013.
The lineup of the International Feature Film Competition includes Nieulotne (Lasting), a film directed by Jacek Borcuch and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute. The film received the award for Best Cinematography (Michał Englert) at this year’s Sundance film festival, and was released theatrically in Poland on February 8, 2013.
The documentary student film Rogalik, directed by Paweł Ziemilski and co-financed by the Polish Film Institute, has been selected for screening in the International Short Film Competition. Rogalik was produced at the National Film School in Łódź, with artistic supervision from Jacek Bławut. The film is a portrait of rural Poland, showing the pastimes of the residents of a small village called Rogalik.
Showcasing documentaries, feature films and animations, the Monterrey International Film Festival is one of Mexico’s key cultural events, popular among Mexican audiences and filmmakers from around the world.
