Vancouver Polish Film Festival
here, schedule here. Alas, I have other plans this weekend, but we see so little Polish cinema in Vancouver - screenings of Wajda, Polanski, and Kieslowski aside - that I'm very pleased to hear this festival exists. Particularly intrigued by the 1990 film, The Escape From The 'Liberty' Cinema, which won a VPFF audience award denoting it a Polish classic; the film tackles the thorny issue of Polish censorship (it helps stoke my interest that I've been recently discussing just that topic with Ryszard Bugajski himself!).
