Warsaw Film Festival
Multikino Złote Tarasy
Since 1985 the Warsaw Film Festival has been screening critically acclaimed movies months before they became worldwide hits. Some of the world’s best directors have been awarded at the Warsaw Film Festival, including Roberto Begnini, Alan Parker, Peter Greenaway and Jim Jarmush.

“Our aim is to show a film before it wins an Oscar, to introduce a director to Warsaw audiences before he or she wins an award at the Cannes festival,” organizers write on their website. This year films from 51 countries will be screened at the WFF.
The main portion of the festival is the annual International Competition. This year’s edition will award a winner out of 15 entries (including two Polish ones). Six of these films will have their world premiere in Warsaw. The festival also features best documentary and best short film competitions.
Dozens of movies are screened at the festival each year. This year’s highlights include “Enough Said,” a romantic comedy starring James Gandolfini (in his penultimate movie) opposite Julia Louis Dreyfuss, “La Vénus à la fourrure,” the latest Roman Polański production and “The Complex,” by Nakata Hideo, the director behind the cult horror film “The Ring.” All of the festival entries will take part in a competition for the audience choice award.
The Warsaw festival is one of 14 events recognized by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations, alongside the festivals in Cannes, Venice and Berlin.
