Hey BFI London Film Festival! Stop being selfish and hogging all the patrons, the Play Poland Film Festival has just touched down in London and it wants to get in on the action! Running for four nights the Play Poland Film Festival has a whole bunch of Polish short films and animations for you to watch, the majority of which have debuted at international film festivals to much critical acclaim.

Thank God It’s Monday!
