WarsAWesome: Your Warsaw Weekend Guide (October 14-15)

1) Warsaw Film Festival

At the Warsaw Film Festival, the organizers strive to “show a film before it wins an Oscar” and they are proud of “not chasing filmmakers who are already famous”.

Price: 15/20 PLN

Either way, you get a free BEER!

    Hello! First of all, thank you so much for this website, I check it out before every weekend and it’s really helpful!!
    I’m interested in the swing event, but the link for “more details here” (of the workshops) leads me to the same page as “the party”. Is this correct? Thanks!!
