The premiere will take place at London’s Regent Street Cinema on Friday 11 November, and will be followed by a Q&A with director Tomáš Weinreb and actress Michalina Olszańska. I, Olga Hepnarová will go on general release around the UK on 18 November, as well as being available on Mubi. Tickets and more information can be found here.
