The Polish Community in Wellington, New Zealand, is a vibrant, social and culturally active community, that aims to share its rich Polish culture with the wider community and to pass on our culture to future generations. Our website provides you with an opportunity to learn something about our community as well as being a gateway to becoming involved in the Polish Community, either through The Polish Association in New Zealand, and/or other groups in the community.

 

NZ Polish Film Festival 2019

In September 2016, Wellington held its first Polish Film Festival, and the very first in New Zealand. Since then, the Festival has had close to 40 screenings of Polish film, four Polish filmmakers visiting New Zealand, several industry visits and Polish and New Zealand filmmaker panel discussions. This has been a great foundation upon which to build and in 2019 we’re delighted to launch the fourth edition. This would not be possible without support from Embassies, Institutions and Associations in both New Zealand and Poland. More so, it is only possible
with the support of local Polish Communities.

It is on that point that we are excited to announce that the Festival is expanding to Christchurch shortly and has plans to further expand to Auckland later in the year for several ‘taster’ screenings! To recognise and celebrate this, we are officially changing our name to the New Zealand Polish Film Festival and in 2020 we will hold the Festival in these three main centres annually, with Wellington being our home base.

Our aim has always been to bring high-quality, contemporary and cutting edge Polish films to New Zealand and this year we are delighted with our lineup, which we will be announcing in early March. Thank you for your encouragement and support in recent years, and we look forward to seeing you at the Roxy cinema, Miramar, Wellington from 3-7 April and other cinemas in Christchurch and Auckland at a later date to be announced.
