Polish Films at Dublin IFF

The eleventh edition of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, Ireland’s largest film event, will run from February 14 through February 24. The festival lineup features several Polish titles.

European Perspectives Section

The European Perspectives section of the Dublin IFF features over 30 films from European countries. In addition to films by such filmmakers as Maja Miloš or the Taviani brothers, the lineup of this section features four new films from Poland: W sypialni (In a Bedroom) by Tomasz Wasilewski, Obława (Manhunt) by Marcin Krzyształowicz, Pokłosie (Aftermath) by Władysław Pasikowski, and 80 milionów (80 Million) by Waldemar Krzystek. Out of the Past, the classics-focused section of the Dublin IFF, will feature Przypadek (Blind Chance) by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The Spectrum section of the festival will feature Arbitrage by Nicholas Jarecki, a film made in cooperation with Polish-based Alvernia Studios.
