Program and tickets for film concerts

Timeless Film Festival Warsaw concerts (April 8-15, 2024) promise a journey of discovery – an exploration of unprecedented connections and a search for new forms of expression. It’s also about rediscovering what has been forgotten and underappreciated. For months, the festival’s creators have collaborated with composers to offer the inaugural Timeless Film Festival Warsaw audience a unique music-film experience – too often, our focus on films centers solely on the visual. The musicians will perform their own compositions, often to films that they themselves have selected.

The festival will feature soloists, ensembles, and orchestras from Poland and around the world. Timeless Film Festival Warsaw at the Polish National Opera, the National Philharmonic, and the POLIN Museum will feature: Stefan Wesolowski’s composition for orchestra, choir and organ, crafted for the festival, Swedish artist and composer Ellen Arkbro on the organ, Japanese composer and multi-instrumentalist Eiko Ishibashi and her GIFT project (created in collaboration with Ryūsuke Hamaguchi, director of the film Drive My Car). Other highlights include performances by cellist Dobrawa Czocher, Dutch lutenist and guitarist Jozef Van Wissem, Belgian composer Wim Mertens (solo concerto for piano and voice), and music by Paweł Mykietyn from the film EO (directed by Jerzy Skolimowski) performed by the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra, as well as and the bands XYLOS and Małe Instrumenty.

A contemporary silent film with live music?

A gothic, musical tale by a Dutch composer who has been recording albums with Jim Jarmusch for years?

How about the power of women, brought to life by the iconic Germaine Dulac and the genre-defying Dobrawa Czocher?
