Polish Film Festival history in Australia The tradition of showing Polish films in Australia goes back to 1994, when Polish films were presented regularly for the first time inAustralia. The first Festival (2012) showcased a comprehensive sample of Polish films and was met with an enthusiastic support from the Australian and Polish community eager to be engaged in Polish cultural and artistic events, and to have an opportunity to see the best of Polish cinema at that time. From there, the Festival grew to become an annual event run by Ted Matkowski, with programs presented by Puma Media and exhibited in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Perth. The response from the Australian and Polish community to the annual Polish Film Festivals has been fantastic and indicating that the screen program and opportunities to meet Polish actors and directors have been much appreciated. The Festival audiences have been growing considerably each year.
