The Ann Arbor Polish Film Festival is an annual cultural event organized by the Polish Cultural Fund—Ann Arbor in cooperation with the Polish-American Congress Ann Arbor Chapter, the University of Michigan's Polish Club, and the University of Michigan. Since its beginning in 1993, the Festival has promoted Polish culture by offering audiences an opportunity to see a broad range of narrative forms and visual styles present in contemporary Polish cinema, including documentaries, animated shorts, and feature films. These works are not only commentaries on life in contemporary Poland, but also reflect the views of Polish artists interpreting diverse issues around the world.

In the news

This year’s special guest will be film director Agnieszka Wójtowicz-Vosloo. She will discuss the After.Life presentation. The story line is of a horrific car accident victim, Anna (Christina Ricci) who wakes up to find the local funeral director Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson) preparing her body for her funeral. Anna doesn’t believe she’s dead, despite the funeral director’s reassurances that she is merely in transition to the afterlife. She will be present after the viewing for questions and discussion.
