The organisers, Indian Film Festival Worldwide, hope it will become an annual event catering to a growing interest in the Indian film industry in Poland.
Until 11 October Polish audiences will have an opportunity to take in both commercial cinema and art-house films. They will also be able to meet some award-winning Indian filmmakers.
"The Indian Film Festival Worldwide aims at creating film festivals across the world so that there is a coming together of talents from that country,” R.C. Dalal, co-curator of the Indian Film Festival, told Radio Poland. “We thought it was a good time to get the filmmakers from India and showcase their films to Polish audiences."
During the opening of the festival, Danuta Isler also spoke to Manisha Koirala, one of India's most well-known actresses, and director Rajesh Mapuskar, who talked about his being inspired by Krzysztof Kieślowski, a renowned Polish film director and screenwriter.
