    POLISH FILM FESTIVAL IN PERTH, the ambassador of Polish cinema in Western Australia, is proud to bring for the 5th time the very best of new Polish films to Perth.The 2019 edition of the event presented by Nicheliving will take place this winter from 16 June to 7 July 2019 at Palace Cinema Paradiso in Northbridge.

    The 2019 edition of the event featurs an exceptional program of award winning and highly anticipated Polish feature films released theatrically in 2019 and 2018.

     

     

    The festival line-up comprises nine recent Polish films and marks the Australian premiere screenings for seven of them.

     

     The 5th Polish Film Festival in Perth will open on Sunday 16 June with the Australian premiere of THE MESSENGER (AKA Kurier) by Władysław Pasikowski - the newest action spy thriller inspired by true events.

     

    THE MESSENGER tells the incredible story of a real-life superhero – the legendary Courier from Warsaw, Jan Nowak Jeziorański, a Polish spy whose lonely mission was to decide the fate of Poland and World War II. Pursued by hostile intelligence agencies, Jan Nowak carried top secret information between occupied Warsaw and London, where he met with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He travelled multiple times through German occupied Europe, narrowly escaping capture during missions thought impossible at the time.

    The selection of the opening film commemorates the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of Warsaw Uprising, the most significant World War II resistance operation against Germany that commenced on 1 August 1944.
