The management of Kwant Film Club (DFK Kwant) at the Warsaw University of Technology always aspired to bring the finest repertoire to the finest audience.
It was here that Michelangelo Antonioni first showed “The Passenger”. It was here that Julio Cortázar, accompanied by Latin American filmmakers and authors, spoke to Polish audience. It was here that Lech Wałęsa (at a screening of previously banned Polish documentaries) eventually met with his supporters outside the Gdańsk Shipyard for the first time. The venue hosted many meetings with Polish and foreign filmmakers, such as: Miklós Jancsó, Gleb Panfilov, Lindsay Anderson, Sidney Lumet, Bernardo Bertolucci, David Puttnam, Liv Ullmann, Marcello Mastroianni, Nikita Mikhalkov, Volker Schlöndorff, Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Zanussi, Kazimierz Kutz, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Roman Polański, Jerzy Skolimowski, Agnieszka Holland, Andrzej Żuławski. Kwant Film Club has evolved and transformed into a window on the world, its audience becoming Warsaw’s elites. It was supervised by then-most famous film critics and theorists, lecturers at the Kwant Film Academy. Currently, the Academy is an open project, aimed mainly at university students (secondary school students and all cinema enthusiasts are welcome as well).
