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.
