Last night Steam Whistle hosted the opening reception for Films of Krzysztof Kieślowski in World Film Posters

Kieslowski is best known for being the director of masterpieces such as Oscar nominated the Three Colours Trilogy, Decalogue and The Double Life of Véronique. This North American premiere of the exhibit also marks the 70th anniversary of his birth and the 15th anniversary of his death.

Among the speakers to celebrate his work was Piers Handling (Head and CEO of Toronto International Film Festival).

OMNI interviewing Handling.

Piers, former friend and fan of Kieslowski gave a very heartfelt speech only saying the best about the talented director personally and professionally. The crowd listened in awe.

The award winning international film posters are currently on display at the brewery for a limited time until September 10th. These works of art are a truly amazing must see.

The evening was filled with art & film enthusiasts bonding over their common interests, a lively DJ who knew how to get the crowd going, a Polish film screening, delicious hors d’oeuvres, Steam Whistle beers and a large representation from the Polish community who were responsible for bringing the exhibit to North America.

Anyone with an appreciation for stunning classic and retro movie posters is strongly encouraged to view the exhibition. The exhibits are open free to the public- Monday to Thursday from 12 noon to 6 pm, Friday and Saturday from 11 am -6pm, and Sunday from 11am to 5 pm. 

Catch you soon!
