The Krakow Film Festival_insider is Poland’s most important celebration of documentary, short and animated cinema.

Emitel’s involvement in cultural events stems from a consistently implemented ESG strategy and is inextricably intertwined with mass culture, including through radio and television. The company supports the

development of artists, young talent and numerous ventures in the area, remaining close to local initiatives. Our activities also include a commitment to promoting high culture, such as our partnership in the 18th Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition, which is not only the most important musical event in Poland, but also one of the most important musical events in the world.

I wish the organisers, creators and viewers a successful festival and an unforgettable experience” – said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel.
