On the 30th of May 2021 starts 61st Krakow Film Festival

It is one of the oldest events in the world dedicated to documentary, animated and short feature films.

During the eight festival days, the viewers have a chance to watch about 250 films from Poland and from around the world.

The festival is accompanied by exhibitions, concerts, open-air shows and meetings with artists.

This year the film about Roman Polanski and Ryszard Horowitz “Polański, Horowitz. Hometown” (by Mateusz Kudła and Anna Kokoszka-Romer) will open the festival. 

The film is a colorful story about childhoods, friendship, the common Jewish fate of the protagonists and, most of all, about Krakow – a place that, despite the passage of time and many changes, remains their home.

The documentary film became famous last year when the Yad Vashem Institute awarded the title of “Righteous Among the Nations” to Stefania and Jan Buchała who hid Polański during the war. The Grandson of the family who saved Polanski was found by filmmakers.

Ryszard Horowitz also owes his life to the Righteous Among the Nations — Oskar Schindler, who saved over a thousand Jews from the Holocaust, including the future photographer and his sister Bronisława “Niusia” Horowitz-Karakulska, whom we will also see in the film.
