Every March, as Krakow slowly shakes off the ice and snow and begins to think about spring, one of the city’s finest independent cinemas offers an escape to the blue skies and golden beaches of the Iberian Peninsula – Spanish Cinema Week (Tydzień Kina Hiszpańskiego).
Held in mid-to-late March (March 10–16 in 2013), Spanish Cinema Week has been organised by Kino Pod Baranami (Cinema Under the Ram) since 2000. The cinema, tucked away in the corner of Krakow’s glorious Main Market Square, partners with the Spanish Embassy and the cultural Cervantes Institute to bring the best from Spain’s fascinating and endlessly inventive film industry to southern Poland. The programme always includes documentaries, short films and full-length features, and often centres around Polish premiers of recent Spanish movies. Most films are shown with English subtitles.
In addition to the dozen-or-so films that form the heart Spanish Cinema Week, there are also post-screening discussions and forums chaired by exerts in Spanish moviemaking. Kino Pod Baranami is well-known for its child-friendly approach and, as always, Spanish Cinema Week is accompanied by the Kids in Spain programme, featuring animated shorts on an Iberian theme for younger cinema-goers.
