About Us

Polish Cinema in Australia, Inc.

Polish Cinema in Australia is built on decades of work of Ted Matkowski who remains integral to our organisation as the Festival Director.

We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fostering cooperation between Polish and Australian film makers. Every year we present a number of Polish films and film-related events. Our activities culminate in the annual Polish Film Festival that takes place in October in Melbourne.

Polish cinema has a distinguished history that is almost as long as the history of cinematography itself. Some of you may be familiar with names such as  Roman Polanski, Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Krzysztof Zanussi or Agnieszka Holland. But in addition to these amazing film makers, we would like to introduce you to many others who contribute to the wonderful, intriguing world of Polish cinema. We believe that the extraordinary achievements of Polish cinema are not only important to us, Poles living in Australia, but to all those who love film.
