2015 Seattle Polish Film Festival opens

SPFF15-20006It was a great week for the 23rd Annual Seattle Polish Film Festival. We opened with a complimentary screening of a Polish cult comedy called “Sexmission” at Northwest Film Forum. About 50 guests enjoyed light snacks prepared by the Seattle Gdynia Sister City Association, producers of this annual event. Next up was our first ever “Vodka and a Drop of Art” featuring 30+ vintage Polish posters and of course, vodka! Friday, Saturday and Sunday featured some great films including “Gods” the true story of Dr. Religa, the surgeon who performed the first successful heart transplant in Poland. The festival continues thru October 18, 2015. Hope to see you there!
