Ekran 2011 -- Toronto Polish Film Festival

POLISH FILMS! POLISH ARTS! POLISH WOMEN! Can it get better than that? Yes it can.

The 2011 year brings the 3rd Annual Ekran Toronto Polish Film Festival, running from October 21st-23rd . It will be a real hoot… inside and outside of the cinema!

We are so “ à la mode ” that we have yet again exclusively rented the Revue Cinema at 400 Roncesvalles Avenue – red carpet included. We are that trendy, and we need an awesome space to host over 1,600 guests!

Roncesvalles is home to a bouquet of artists, musicians, young professionals, Polaks, potheads, writers, eccentrics, pseudo-intellectuals, activists, and designers who donate the neighbourhood a rich air of drama, arts, culture, and style. What better place to host the Ekran Toronto Polish Film Festival!
Come on out! See a Polish film! See a documentary! Or an animation! Laugh! Cry! Join a revolution!

And we have FOOD!

Enjoy some Polish Borsh (beet soup which may sound gross but is incredible), krokiets (meat or vegetable filled dough rolls), or pierogi…WHO DOESN’T LOVE PIEROGI?!?!?
