Looking for something interesting to do in London this weekend? From Poland With Shorts is coming to Riverside Studios with three great short film collections plus a restored print of Andrzej Munk's 1958 comedy classic Eroica.

The films, which are showing as part of the Polish Cultural Exchange Programme, feature some of the best work by emerging young Polish directors. There's a chance to see Golden Dragon winner Out Of Reach alongside Three For The Taking, the latest work by Bartek Konopka, whose 2009 short Rabbit À La Berlin was nominated for the Best Documentary Short Oscar.

The festival will be held on the 17th and 18th of September.
