2020 Polish Film Festival in America

2020 Polish Film Festival in America

The Polish Film Festival of America in Chicago, the first (since 1989), the best, and the biggest of the Polish movie festivals in the United States is on! This year, it has a hybrid form due to COVID-19. That is, some movies will be screened in an actual cinema theatres in Chicago, while some others will be available through streaming. The festival will even feature some movies that have not been released yet in Poland due to the cinemas being closed because of pandemic. These movies will screen only as “secret movies”, with no prior announcement, and will not be available for streaming.

Please note: streaming for a movie may have a limited time window to see the movie, such as 48 hrs.

Please note, a PFFA streaming is typically limited to a time window, such as 48 hours. Apparently some “live” streaming movies may have a shorter time, so pay attention before you buy a ticket.

The following is a note sent to the PFFA subscribers concerning streaming and its gotchas, complete with the contacts to the Festival when things go wrong and you have problems:

To start, go to the PFFA website www.pffamerica.org First, click LIST OF FILMS, you will see all film titles. Click title you are interested in. You will see an option to buy STREAMING TICKET. Pay with your credit card and receive e-mail with a code to open the film. One code is like one ticket, but in most cases you will have 48 hrs. to view the selected film; you can start watching on Monday and finish on Tuesday, if it suits your schedule. The movies marked as real time screening can have shorter viewing span, for example, from 7:30 PM. to 11:30 PM. One important thing: make sure that you have a new version of your browser. Majority of festival films will be available online throughout the whole event until November 22nd. PFFA support team will be on hand online (just send an e-mail to pffamerica@pffamerica,com) or by phone (773-486-9612).
