SHORT FILM FESTIVALS IN FEBRUARY
Winter also touches the festivals, that is why in February Polish short films appear only in a few places abroad. Let's find out at which festivals you can watch Polish productions this month.
Mumbai International Film Festival in India, which started in January, shows the film "A Brave Bunch. Children of Warsaw Uprising" by Tomasz Stankiewicz. At Manipulate Film Festival in Great Britain, which also started in January, you can watch the film "Evening" by Izabela Plucińska.
