The third Krzysztof Komeda Film Music Festival will be held in Warsaw April 19-20 to pay homage to Krzysztof Komeda Trzciński, a Polish jazz composer and pianist who influenced international jazz and film music in the 1960s.

The festival will screen films with music by the composer, who died April 23, 1969. There will also be concerts featuring Polish jazz stars and meetings with special guests. The festival will be accompanied by an exhibition of photographs dedicated to Komeda from the collection of journalist and photographer Marek Karewicz.

Komeda composed soundtracks for 65 films, including Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby. He died in Warsaw as a result of a serious accident that he suffered in the United States.
