Revue Cinema – 4th Annual Ekran Polish Film Festival – October 25-28th, 2012

Posted on October 26, 2012

 

“Ekran Polish Film Festival in Toronto returns for its 4th annual edition from October 25th to the 28th, 2012, and is expected to draw an audience of over 3000 film-goers from across the GTA to its primary location at the historic Revue Cinema on Roncesvalles Ave.

 

Ekran Polish Film Festival is the brainchild of Ekran Polish Film Association, a grassroots, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting Polish film and media arts within Canada’s multicultural setting.  Over the first three years of its existence, the Ekran team was focused largely on promoting its activities within the Polish-Canadian community in order to secure sponsorships and grow its audience base.  Having succeeded in this task, Ekran Polish Film Festival is now ready to take another step toward its long-term objective of delivering a program that can appeal to both Polish-Canadians and the broader multicultural community of Toronto.”
