The 3rd Film Music Festival in Krakow could not do without Jerzy Hoffman – a director called by critics and journalists “wielkim hetmanem polskiego kina”, the creator of the legendary film adaptations of subsequent parts of the trilogy of Henryk Sienkiewicz. “We are glad that such a respectable figure of Polish cinema accepted our invitation.

This not only raises the rank of the event, but also allows you to play music from movies that we all know very well, “says Krakow Mayor Jacek Majchrowski .
