The feature debut by Piotr Domalewski is a Christmas-time family drama infused with black humour with exceptional performances by Dawid Ogrodnik, Arkadiusz Jakubik and Agnieszka Suchora.

Highlights of 2018 program also include: Winner of the Golden Goblet for Best Director at the Shanghai International Film Festival 2017 and the Silver Lions for Best Film at the Gdynia Film Festival 2016, I’M A KILLER (Jestem Morderca), by the award-winning director of one of the most successful Polish films in recent years, the internationally awarded LIFE FEELS GOOD (Chce sie zyc).

I’M A KILLER is a fascinating psychological thriller that flawlessly combines elements of comedy, drama and gripping murder investigation. Awarded the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at 2018 Berlin Film Festival, MUG (Twarz), by the acclaimed Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska, who will sit on the Jury of the Main Competition of the 75th Venice Film Festival. It’s a tragicomedy about a young construction worker who is disfigured in a near-fatal accident that forever changes not only his appearance but also his life. The Festival will close with one of the most spectacular recent debuts about anxieties overpowering the modern society.

In PANIC ATTACK (Atak Paniki) by Pawel Maslona comedy and tragedy come together when seemingly unrelated stories of ordinary people lead to a dramatic climax showing how one’s entire world can collapse at any given moment. The film light-heartedly touches on first world problems people face in 21st century cities.
