The Ann Arbor Polish Film Festival is an annual event made possible by the Polish Cultural Fund in cooperation with the Polish-American Congress Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan’s Polish Student Association, and the Copernicus Program in Polish Studies. Since its inception in 1993, the festival has featured contemporary Polish documentaries, animated shorts, feature films, and children’s films (along with the Children’s Book Fair) offering diverse perspectives on a range of Polish and global issues. Each year the festival also makes available many of the distinguished directors, actors and producers through interactive forums.

The Festival features a juried film competition in three categories: documentary film, short narrative film, and film debut, and grants the following awards: Ewa Pięta Award for the Best Documentary Film, Best Short Narrative Award, and Dr. Andrzej Dolata Award for the Best Film Debut.

Fall 2017 Event Themes

Populism Series

What fuels the rise of populism in various parts of Europe, Eurasia, and beyond? Speakers in this series will discuss genealogies and varieties of populism, and ponder how 21st-century populisms are related to other key phenomena of our times—globalization, neoliberalism, and pluralism.

Regionalism Series

What is the meaning of regionalism at the twin age of nationalism and European Unionism? Speakers will discuss the political and academic formation and transformation of regions like “Europe,” “Eastern Europe,” or “the Balkans,” and reflect on the implications of reframing regional boundaries for our understanding of various European societies.
