Letter 2019

Dear Friends,

The Polish American Film Society is proud to announce the 20th Annual Polish Film Festival in Los Angeles (October 18 – 24, 2019) celebrating the greatest achievements of Polish filmmakers.

We had to find new venue for the Gala Opening, since Netflix bought  the Egyptian Theatre and is not respecting earlier signed contracts.

The festival will open on Friday, October 18, 2019, with Valley of the Gods by Lech Majewski, starring Josh Hartnett, Jaime Ray Newman, John Malkovich and music by  Jan A. P. Kaczmarek. Our star-studded gala during which both Polish and American moviemakers will walk the red carpet at the WGA Theatre, an extravagant start to a seven-day-long celebration of Polish Cinema through October 24, 2019 with subsequent  screenings at the Laemmle’s NoHo 7 and Monica Film Center.

The Gala Opening is a very special evening. It is crucial in supporting our celebration of Polish Cinema in Los Angeles, and for this reason the Gala is open by invitation to Festival supporters. To become a supporter please make a minimum donation of $100.00 (per person) before September 15, 2019. The VIP seats are available for a minimum donation of $250.00 (per person).

Since we changed the venue space is limited, so please make your donations early to secure your seat.  Please make your invaluable, tax-deductible contribution, by mailing your checks to: Polish American Film Society, 7726 Ethel Ave., North Hollywood, CA 91605, or through PayPal on our web site.

The Festival continues to grow each year by screening more films and drawing larger crowds. As we expand, we seek increased support for this truly unique and rewarding “Holiday of Polish Cinema.” This is where our friends, patrons and valued sponsors can help.  You can find sponsorship opportunities on our web site. As a loyal supporter of the Polish Film Festival Los Angeles you recognize the importance of promoting Polish film and Polish culture in Hollywood. Without such generosity and support, this event would not be possible.

We highly value and appreciate your anticipated generosity and support.
