Protesting and praying on the feast. The first such event in Poland

As the organizers of the Warsaw Film Festival Post Pxrn declared, the first film event of this kind in Poland, “It is an independent artistic initiative that attempts to give support and courage to everyone who disagrees with what politicians and the Church have to offer.”

How was the festival planned? From June 7 to 12, 2022, nearly 300 films from around the world will be shown, grouped into 45 thematic groups, mostly short and medium-length films. Entry to the event is only permitted to persons over the age of 18. The presentations are accompanied by discussions with authors and creators, discussions, workshops and presentations.
