In the festival's words:

filmPOLSKA, the largest festival for Polish film in Germany, is coming of age: From September 6 to 13, 2023, the Berlin event will celebrate its 18th edition. Despite the transition into adulthood, the festival remains true to its main goal: to introduce the next generation of Polish filmmakers* to a broad German audience. The 18th edition of filmPOLSKA will also be Kornel Miglus' last: Miglus, who launched the festival in 2005, is taking a break from his curatorial duties starting in October. The festival curator sums up the festival years in which filmPOLSKA presented 1,709 films at 35 venues in Berlin and Brandenburg: "A melange of classics and fresh blood always formed the cinematic core of the festival program. We placed particular emphasis on the exchange with the audience, or in other words: we wanted to win the hearts of the viewers for Polish cinematic art. And I think we succeeded in doing that."

As usual, the 18th filmPOLSKA edition will take place in cinemas, clubs and public spaces. Of course, there will again be numerous talks with guests, a panorama, a look at the archive, the focus on "Art in Cinema," a party, an exhibition, a workshop and a retrospective at the Zeughauskino. In addition, there will be a focus on "War in Documentary Film" and an extensive short film program.
