To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Polish Film Festival, the Permanent Chair of Polish Culture at Canisius College has teamed up with the Buffalo International Film Festival (BIFF).

The line-up of the program includes ZAĆMA/BLINDNESS (2016) by Ryszard Bugajski, screened at North Park Theatre, 1428 Hertel Avenue, Buffalo 14216, on Saturday, October 8, 2017, at 5:45 PM. We are pleased to offer the U.S. premiere of this captivating drama about a high-ranking security officer in Poland’s communist government who is haunted by her ruthless past and seeks an audience with the Primate of the Catholic Church in Poland in search of forgiveness.

BIFF will also be screening short documentary, KONIEC ŚWIATA/THE END OF THE WORLD (2015) by Monika Pawluczuk, at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center on October 9th at 11AM. Hallwalls is located at 341 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo 14202. Pawluczuk’s documentary peers deep into our souls, discovering what we all long and hope for: to be heard, to share your life with someone. When we fall, when we give up, when we feel lonely - that is when we give ourselves up to the fear. This fear of "the end of the world" - shown here both on a symbolic and personal level - is one of the most important parts of human condition. It is an everlasting fear of the end and solitude.
