From Warsaw to Wellington – a future star going places

Apr 12th, 2018 | By | Category: Radio News

Wellington’s unique culture has a European film starlet hoping to return soon.

Zofia Wichłacz was in the capital last week for the Wellington Polish Film Festival.

The young actor was a special guest at Thursday night’s opening gala.

She says Wellington is a beautiful city with a proud reputation in cinema that is reflected in its vibe.

Zofia played the female lead in Warsaw ‘44, which had its New Zealand premiere on Thursday.

She says the film was a good fit for the festival’s overall theme – 100 years of Poland’s regained independence.

Zofia Wsays working with the likes of Andrzej Wajda and Agnieszka Holland has been really valuable in her career so far.

Zofia was one of 10 young actors to win a Shooting Star Award at last year’s Berlin International Film Festival.

Previous winners of the award include Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Alicia Vikander.

She says the award has opened many doors for her career, including international opportunities that wouldn’t have been available otherwise.


The Roxy Cinema in Miramar hosted seven film screenings over the four days of the Wellington Polish Film Festival.


A Q&A session with Zofia was held as part of the opening night gala.
