SPFF Mission Statement
The Seattle Polish Film Festival has as its goal the promotion and appreciation of Polish culture and history through cinematic works of quality.  It is our belief that Poland has a rich history of cinema that has a broad appeal to Seattle’s film-going public, one of the most active film-going communities in the country.  We strive to break the mold of a niche, ethnic film festival and bridge the gap between Poles and non-Polish speakers by incorporating a wide variety of films into our program, including Polish Independent and Polish-American works.  We also promote SPFF as a powerful networking tool between well-known artists from Poland, working Polish-Americans in the film and television fields from across the US, and the Seattle film-going and film making public.

Meet the team
Zbigniew Pietrzyk, Managing Director: A prominent member of Poland’s Solidarity movement, Zbigniew has lived in Seattle since 1983, and has served in a variety of different roles with both Polish Home Association, as well as Seattle Gdynia Sister City Association.

Michal Pietrzyk, Festival Co-Director: Zbigniew’s son Michal is a 7 year veteran of the television production field, and is Director of Operations at local television production company PSG Films, who make documentary programming for the National Geographic Channel.  Michal’s work in documentary has taken him as far as Siberia and Kazakhstan.

Many volunteers are still needed to work with our professionals. If you are interested please contact us at sgsca12@gmail.com
