Toronto’s 10th Polish Film Festival is Back for One Last Weekend! November 16-18 in Mississauga!

Last week in Toronto was a blast! This year we’ve decided to extend the festivals 10 year anniversary celebrations for one more weekend– in Mississauga! (November 16, 17 & 18).

Why not extend our festival to a city that holds one of Ontario’s largest population of Polonia??

Mississauga is home to 26,610 Polish-speaking inhabitants as per the Canadian Census Profile of 2016. 

The Mayor of Mississauga, Bonnie Crombie, is of Polish/Ukrainian descent and is active in the Polish community.

 

So why not ? Let’s do this!

Here’s a look at the weekend to come:

Our Host for Mississauga came all the way from Poland to be a part of our festival, actress Jolanta Mrotek, best known for her roles in theatre and television.

Our Guests Include: 

Monika Onoszko, Award Winning Costume Designer of Pardon
Maciej Pawelczyk, Producer and Editor of The Gorals
Zygmunt Sieradzki, Producer of Don’t Cry When I am Gone

All the guests will participate in the Q&A session after the screening of their films.

Our Toronto Host, Anna Cyzon, will be moderating the Q&A session for The Gorals.
