I am very proud to be part of the IAFM’s presentation of the Vistula 1st Polish Film Festival in Bangladesh 2021. Firstly, my mother’s heritage is Polish, so naturally I feel a kinship. And secondly, and more importantly, is the astonishing contribution to cinema that Polish filmmakers have made including Krzysztof Kieślowski, Agnieszka Holland, Roman Polanski, Paweł Pawlikowski and Andrejz Vada to name just a few.

Participate in this event, see these films and discover new voices.
