Opening the festival on October 9th , the festival's director, Stefan Laudyn, told reporters that films featured this year  address a diverse range of social and political problems, including the global coronavirus pandemic.

The majority of the awards at this year’s event were granted online, however the festival took place in its regular venues in Warsaw,  with safety protocols in place, allowing the theatres to be filled to only half capacity and requiring viewers to wear face masks and keep a safe distance.

The Warsaw Film Festival is organised since 1985, for the past 11 years it is part of the elite group of events recognised by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations, as an  international film festival , next to Cannes, Karlovy Vary, Berlin  or Venice.
