Polish Film Festival at the Montante Cultural Center

If you’re a film fan and you’ve never attended an event at the Montante Cultural Center, and there are many, this is one that may interest you. From Thursday November 4th to Sunday November 7th, the center will be home to a Polish Film Festival featuring subtitled screenings of high-ranking films produced by some of the best Polish directors in the industry. The festival also gives viewers the chance to hear from a couple of the directors, including Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo (Image: 2009 Afterlife starring Liam Neeson and Christina Ricci).

Between the cinematic line-up and the stunning venue, The Permanent Chair of Polish Culture at Canisius College has, once again, crafted an event that not only pays tribute to Polish heritage, it also enhances Buffalo’s cultural stake in the arts arena. We’ve seen a dramatic rise in the number of cinematic festivals in Buffalo with themes ranging from horror to disabilities. Many of these festivals are annual and take place at myriad venues throughout the city. Following is a line-up of films and talks being featured throughout the course of the four-day series:
