Activity for Wednesday: diving for pearls. This section is a real treasure trove, so pick one (or more, go ahead!) for yourself. A selection of one-of-a-kind films, iconic works marking significant anniversaries, or alternatively, hidden gems and stories from years ago beaming with newfound brilliance. Join us for Special Screenings as part of Timeless Film Festival Warsaw, on screens today:

  • według wszelkich źródeł: najlepszy film koncertowy w historii kina Stop making sense
  • By all accounts: the best concert film in the history of cinema, Stop Making Sense,
  • A double feature — of Charlie Shackleton’s evocative experiment The Afterlight and a journey along the rails of cinematic history Train again,
  • A screening of Hamaguchi’s new film, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival — Evil Does Not Exist

Musical sensations in the evening will be taken care of in the impressive space of the POLIN Museum. Prominent Belgian composer, pianist, and guitarist, Wim Mertens will perform for the first time in Warsaw with a solo concert for piano and voice. Invited by TFFW, he will perform his own film music, including pieces from Peter Greenaway’s The Belly of an Architect, Pierre Boutron’s Fiesta, and Marion Hänsel’s Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Starting at 8:00 PM, tickets for this event are still available

Shall we go to Elementy after the show? We highly encourage you to continue film discussions right there and enjoy summer evenings already in April.
