The Oscars City Walk is the first walk planned as part of the Trail. Did you know that all Polish films honoured with an award from the American Film Academy were produced in Łódź?


Learn the extraordinary tradition of the film Łódź, following up the greatest titles: Paweł Pawlikowski’s Ida, Agnieszka Holland’s In Darkness, Andrzej Wajda’s Afterimage and The Promised Land as well as cult animated films: Zbigniew Rybczyński’s Tango and Suzie Templeton’s Peter & the Wolf, created in the Se-ma-for animation studio.


On the walking route you will not only visit the locations in Łódź which appeared on screen in Oscar-winning titles, but you will also have a chance to see the original Oscar statuette!
