• Nothing that is film-related is alien to us!

    We tend our celluloid tapes – we moisten, clean and preserve them. We store gems of the Polish and world cinematography in our archives, wipe dust off of them and give them new lives. And we make DVDs, books and magazines available to the public in the Multimedia Library of the Silesian Archive on daily basis. Completely free of charge!

    We protect our film heritage
  • Are you looking for a movie theatre you could become really fond of?

    You need to see the Rialto, the Swiatowid, the Kosmos, the Janosik and the Baltic. In each and every one of them, you will meet open-minded and friendly people – they are the ones who select movies for screening, never boring ones… but nothing to pamper you either! In our theatres you are supposed to think!

    And the ambience…!

    We run arts movie theatres
  • We help filmmakers!

    Are you looking for a dash of greatness (instead of slapdash)? So we may well try and look for it together. Apply for financial support to the Silesian Film Fund or get in touch with the Silesia Film Commission – we have the best contacts!
