CineMe have put together a collection of nine Polish Shorts, to illustrate the history and importance of Polish cinema.  The night will include Polish short film animations, drama, documentary, with a mix of current films and some from the past.  The curated programme will introduce you to new emerging filmmakers, together with some of the masters of Polish cinema, who have gone onto become successful in features.

Film highlights on the night include:-

Damian Nenow's animation Paths of Hate.  A short tale about the demons that slumber deep in the human soul and have the power to push people into the abyss of blind hate, fury and rage.

Bristol based animator Dotty Kultys' The Girl Who Spoke Cat.  A film about a curious girl who follows a strange cat, only to discover an underground world filled with life, colour and joy.

2009 short film drama Hanoi-Warsaw, directed by Katarzyna Klimkiewicz who went onto make the 2012 feature Flying Blind that was filmed in Bristol (UK).  Hanoi-Warsaw follows Vietnamese girl, Mai Anh, who enters Poland illegally as she attempts to reach Warsaw, to join her boyfriend and start the life she had dreamed of.

Acclaimed director Roman Polanski's 1959 short The Lamp, which is set in a dollmakers shop, focussing on the apparent whisperings amongst the miscellaneous doll parts, when the owner leaves one night.

Tomek Baginski's BAFTA award winning animation Fallen Art.  This animation is about a volunteer soldier who plummets to his death.  A photograph is taken of the incident and sent by courier to a huge man, who adds it to his macabre collection.

Two short films from Warsaw born director Grzegorz Jonkajtys including sci-fi drama The 3rd Letter and animation Ark.

Together with Krzysztof Kieslowski's 1966 short silent film Tramway about a boy who watches a girl on a tram and was produced when he was a student at the Lodz Film School.
