Polish Film Festival 2016 has been rescheduled for June and will be held in two alternative venues due to the Central Library renovation. We will start on Saturday, June 4th in the community room in Polish Catholic Church on 419 Hill Street at 6:15 pm with the film by Jan Jakub Kolski Serce, serduszko. This film tells a story of an 11 years old girl, Maszenka, who is in a foster care after  her mother's death and her father's inability to provide adequate care. Maszenka dreams about a ballet career and one day she runs away, together with her eccentric tutoress Kordula to travel across Poland to Gdansk for the exam to ballet school. During this adventurous journey they are meeting many interesting people. This nice family movie is worth watching even for the great roles of the two main characters: Maszenka played by Marysia Blandzi and Kordula – by Julia Kijowska and beautiful pictures of Polish countryside.

This film is the only one without English subtitles. We apologize for any inconvenience.
