2016 PFFA AT A GLANCE
The 28th Polish Film Festival in America, one of Chicago’s premier film events, will take place from November 5 to 20, 2016 in two premier cinematic venues in the Chicagoland. Over seventy feature, documentary and animated films made by Polish filmmakers will be presented, most of them with English subtitles.
The Opening Night Gala Screening is scheduled for Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 8:00 P.M. in one of the country’s most outstanding and elegant cinema multiplexes Muvico Rosemont 18 (9701 Bryn Mawr Ave., Rosemont). The Opening Night Gala Reception with stars of Polish film in attendance is scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 P.M. and will take place at The Society for Arts (1112 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL). Parking is complimentary for the Opening Night patrons in both locations.
Throughout the Festival, audience members will vote for the most interesting feature and documentary film. The winners will receive the “Golden Teeth” Award.
The Closing Night Gala and Award Ceremony will take place in Muvico Rosemont 18 on Sunday, November 20th at 4:00 P.M. For all special screenings and receptions separate invitations are required.
Single admission to movie screenings (except Opening, Closing and Special Screenings) is $15.00 for feature, and $10.00 for documentary programs. We recommend the purchase of Festival Passes at the reduced rate, our audience’s favorite buy in recent years. The Pass admits one person to any seven screenings and costs $75.00. The Opening, Closing Nights and Special Screenings are excluded from the pass. The Opening Night guests and pass buyers will receive a complimentary copy of the Festival’s program book.
