The Leeds International Film Festival offers a rich variety from the short film form. One programme that promises real quality is this selection made at the Polish National Film School. Friends who have seen the features in the Martin Scorsese Masterpieces of Polish Cinema will know that the school has been [and remains] a really fine training ground for young filmmakers.
There are two programmes of film, running for one hundred minutes each. The first includes the young filmmaker seen above, Roman Polanski. There is also an early film by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The first programme covers the 1960s until 1980s. The second programme offers current films and filmmakers.
Definitely worth getting along for on Monday afternoon. And going on past years all of the short film programmes should offer at least some distinctive and enjoyable filmmaking.
