This article is a review of the book titled Rozmowy przy filmie. Wywiady z polskimi
filmoznawcami [Talking about Films. Interviews with Polish Film Scholars], edited by
Żakieta, K., Góralik, M., Pospieszyńska, A. (Lodz, 2016). The reviewer pays attention to
different topics brought up by interviewees in academic discussion. Both the series of meetings mentioned in the book’s title and the book itself were also meant to popularise film
knowledge among people interested in audiovisual culture. The greatest advantage of the
book is sharing with readers not only their extensive knowledge, but – what is at least equally
important – their love for cinema.
