Boleslaw Matuszewski created his first documentary films in 1896, and Polandís first movie house was established in 1908. Despite war and repression, Polish cinema continued to grow and to reach for artistic heights. The twentieth century closed with new challenges, but a new generation of Polish filmmakers stood ready to meet them.

Here is a complete history of the Polish cinema through the end of the twentieth century, with special attention to political and economic contexts.
