Picturing the world for 75 years. Lodz Film School Anniversary

6 films
Polish cinematography has been and continues to be created by graduates of Lodz Film School. Their names appear in the credits of Polish and international films and they are the ones lauded, awarded and honoured at festivals and competitions across the world. Lodz Film School comprises not just a building in Targowa street but also its genius loci – a collection of experiences, thoughts, emotions, ideas, dreams and creative struggles accompanied by fear and joy as well as successes and failures of people who have been part of the School for many years. We would like to summon this spirit on the occasion of the anniversary! We are celebrating, reminiscing, watching films, meeting people and continue to obsessively PICTURE THE WORLD. Come and join us to celebrate the 75th birthday of Lodz Film School!
