East meets west tonight as Queen’s Film Theatre launches the Kinoteka Polish Film Festival.

This will be the fourth year Kinoteka has come to Belfast to showcase the best in new and classic Polish cinema.

Susan Picken, QFT manager, said: “This year’s Kinoteka programme reflects the quality and diversity of Polish cinema. We are delighted to host the festival once again and look forward to a fascinating series of screenings.”

The festival opens with Waldemar Krzystek’s award-winning film Little Moscow. It is based on the director’s memories of life in the area of Poland where the headquarters of Soviet forces were stationed between 1945 and 1990.

Set in the late 1960s, it tells the tragic tale of Wiera, the wife of a Russian commander who falls in love with a Polish officer.

Another screening is the Irish premiere of Xawery Zulawski’s Snow White, Russian Red.

The film festival will run until March 11.
