Following Magda’s trip to The Big Smoke last weekend, we’re going to bring you some of the highlights from the Kinoteka Polish Film Festival. From poster’s exhibition, through to Oscar nominated documentaries and finishing off with a real treat for cinema lovers; Martin Scorsese Presents Masterpieces of Polish Cinema. We spoke to Marlena Łukasiak, the festival’s organiser about the origin of the festival and its development into one of the biggest film events in London. We also caught up with one of the acts, The Kissinger Twins, who delivered a fascinating presentation on interactive story telling (cinematic labyrinths).
