March sees us slowly waking up from our winter and rushing off to festivals whose line-ups feature quite a few Polish documentaries. Our films will be shown at True/False Film Festival, CPH:DOX*, One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, and more. Check out where you can watch Polish productions this month.

Two festivals that invited Paweł Łoziński's latest film have begun in March. The Balcony Movie will be screened at True/False Film Festival and International Documentary Film Festival ARTDOCFEST/RIGA. And this isn't everything that March has in store for this documentary. The production is also going to visit the Punto de Vista International Documentary Film Festival of Navarra in Spain, First Look Festival in the US, Vilnius International Film Festival “Kino pavasaris” in Latvia, and It's All True - 27th International Documentary Film Festival in Brazil. The film also won't miss CPH:DOX* | Copenhagen Int. Documentary Film Festival. In addition to The Balcony Movie, you'll also get to see Kacper Lisowski's Judges Under Pressure, as well as the premiere – and in-competition – screening of Łukasz Kowalski's The Pawnshop. You can read more about it here.

Festival Internacional de Cine Documental Miradasdoc launches in the first days of March. Its program includes two Polish short documentaries – Light Years by Monika Proba and Balcony Concert by Diana and Krzysztof Kadłubowscy. The latter will enjoy its other screening at Ismailia International Film Festival in Egypt.

The short Backstage by Ada Syk qualified for the competition at SXSW – one of the most important and most popular independent cinema festivals. It will be the film's international premiere. Febiofest Bratislava will start a few days after the American festival. Its audience will get to see Papa by Maryia Yakimovich. 

The London Human Rights Watch Film Festival will begin in the UK in the second half of the month. Its competition includes Judges Under Pressure by Kacper Lisowski and Silence Heard Loud by Anna Konik, which will also open the festival. You can find out more here. The film about Polish judges is going to open the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival. The festival held by our neighbours also has Michał Kawecki's No Hero At All in its program. We wrote about it here.

The Whale from Lorino by Maciej Cuske is also up for awards this month. The production will be screened at the International Film Festival “Fishermen of the World” in France.
