Films, theatre performances and programmes – these and other productions can be viewed from the comfort of your home on the Warsaw VOD platform. Selected films from the Kamera Dawida (EN- Camera of David) Warsaw Jewish Film Festival are also available until the end of December.
The VOD Warszawa platform has been designed for Warsaw's cultural institutions and non-governmental organizations, and above all – for the audience. This one site hosts films, performances, concerts, exhibitions footage, and podcasts - everything that makes up the cultural offer of Warsaw's theatres, museums, foundations and associations.
Kamera Dawida on VOD.warszawa.pl
From the comfort of your home, you can now see the film "Ukos światła" (EN- "Bevel of Light"), which tells the story of Dariusz Popiel, an athlete and activist fighting to restore memory of the Jewish community in Podhale. Popiela was awarded the 2021 POLIN Award for his actions.
Among the films made available was also "Etgar Keret. Based on a true story" - an unconventional biography of an outstanding Israeli writer created by two Dutch people: director Stephane Kaas and screenwriter Rutger Lemm, who were fascinated by his work. This film received multiple awards, including at film festivals in Krakow, San Francisco, Washington and Haifa.
Films from the festival's prior editions are also available on Warsaw's VOD platform, including the documentary "Dobry i zły nazista" (EN- "The Good and Bad Nazi") or the feature films "Droga Aszera" (EN- "The Way of Asher"), "Feniks" (EN"Phoenix"), and "Więcej niż zasługuję" (EN- "More than I deserve").

Theatre right in your home
The VOD Warszawa platform also offers its viewers performances from Warsaw's theatres. Currently, you can watch the musical ""Piloci" (EN- "The Pilots") from the Roma Musical Theatre, telling a love story against the background of World War II, and "Niedzielne popołudnie" (EN- "Sunday afternoon") from the Młyn Theatre, which very accurately depicts the confrontation of idealistic ideas about living together with reality.

The performances are available on the website of VOD.
