The 8th Annual New York Polish Film Festival (NYPFF) is bringing Poland’s latest, most riveting cinematic feats to the United States!

The annual New York Polish Film Festival (NYPFF) is back again! Each year, we bring the latest in sensational Polish cinema to audiences in the New York City metropolitan area. From comedies, to adventures, to coming-of-age dramas, we screen the most creative and exciting selections that Polish directors have to offer, and that film enthusiasts in the United States may not otherwise have a chance to see.
This year, we also need your help to make our festival a success. Our staff is entirely volunteers, and we depend on your generous donations to cover the costs of renting the theater, transporting the film reels, printing the tickets, and advertising to get the word out into the community! Any donation will have a great impact on our festival!
