Warsaw International Film Festival

Logo of Warsaw International Film Festival

Established in 1985, the Warsaw Film Festival joined in 2009 the elite group of events recognized by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (www.fiapf.org) as international non-specialised film festivals - next to Cannes, Venice, Berlin, Locarno, San Sebastian, Karlovy Vary, Tokyo, Mar del Plata, Shanghai, Cairo, Fajr, Goa, and Tallinn.

The WFF differs from other festivals in its programme, just as Warsaw differs from other cities. Selecting the films, we always remember about our audience - native Varsovians, those working or studying in Warsaw, and those in town for a short while, for instance only for the Festival.

We do our best to make sure that our audiences get to know the latest and most interesting trends in world cinema as soon as possible. In [...]

On November 29, 1974, the DINA arrested Carmen Bueno and Jorge Müller after the premiere of the film "A la sombra del sol". Ten years later, Chilean filmmakers organized to commemorate that day as Chilean Film Day, a date that was distorted with the arrival of democracy, since the large exhibition chains saw a business opportunity, relegating the true meaning of the date. From 2010 onwards, university attempts and the Museum of Memory began to retake the true meaning of the day of Chilean cinema, with almost the only venue being the Metropolitan region. 50 years after the civil-military coup d'état, the Municipality of Valparaíso decided to commemorate November 29 by showing the film "El Realismo Socialista" by Ruiz-Sarmiento, with photography by Jorge Müller.
