Online visitors can now access WFDiF’s most significant works, dating as far back as the 1940’s and ranging to contemporary Polish cinematography, via a live stream or through a library of VOD titles.  An assortment of educational materials is also available on the WFDiF online platform, including workshops, lectures, and guided on-set tours.
