StarForce 2009 Coming To Torun, Poland

Posted By Mike on October 10, 2009



See the press release below from our friend Lukasz at Imperial City Online:


TORUN, Poland – July 7th, 2009 – StarForce 2009 Convention Celebrates 30 Years of Star Wars in Poland

Today we are thrilled to announce the ultimate Polish Star Wars event. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars in Poland, the StarForce 2009 convention will be filled with out-of-this-world attractions and guest appearances.

Although George Lucas's classic "Star Wars" premiered in USA in 1977, it wasn't until 1979 that fans from Poland were able to see it in local cinemas. Full of dazzling special effects and fairy-tale romance, this unique movie immediately captured the imagination of Polish science-fiction and fantasy fans.

The StarForce 2009 convention will commemorate this special anniversary. On September 12th the forces of light and darkness, Rebellion and Empire, Jedi and Sith, will descent upon the streets of the medieval city of Torun. Here, the historical atmosphere of the Old Town is set against the modern interior of the "Znaki Czasu" Centre of Contemporary Art, where the majority of highlights of the event will take place.

Organised by the Office of the Marshal of the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship and the Tourism Organisation of Province Kujawsko-Pomorskie, the StarForce 2009 convention is co-organised by the members of the 501st Legion Polish Garrison, Rebel Legion Eagle Outpost and Star Wars fanclubs from Bydgoszcz and Torun.

Please stay tuned for StarForce 2009 updates, including the announcement about the official website of the convention and our Star Guests!

TORUN, Poland – August 21st, 2009 – Official StarForce 2009 Website is Live!

With just three weeks to go, we are pleased to announce that the English version of the official StarForce 2009 website is now live!

• StarForce 2009 Convention Programme;
• Information concerning the location of the event;

Loyal subjects of the Emperor will be pleased to learn that overwhelming Imperial forces are on route to join us at the StarForce 2009 convention. On September 12th, elite ground forces of the Empire, formed by members of the 501st Legion Polish Garrison, will march triumphantly through the streets of Torun, led by the finest officers of the Imperial Fleet – Admiral Piett (Mr Kenneth Colley) and Admiral Motti (Mr Richard LeParmentier)!

So, if you’re planning on a trip to Poland this September, why not join us in Torun, the Medieval Town inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus. What better place to celebrate the events which took place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Organised by the Office of the Marshal of the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship and the Tourism Organisation of Province Kujawsko-Pomorskie, the StarForce 2009 convention is co-organised by the members of the 501st Legion Polish Garrison, Rebel Legion Eagle Outpost and Star Wars fanclubs from Bydgoszcz and Torun.

Thanks Lukasz!


UPDATE #2: Our friend Lukasz sent over the following in regards to some StarForce coverage...

"Just thought I drop you a line about a report from StarForce written by Richard LeParmentier and myself:

http://www.lightsabre.co.uk/celebration3/Star%20Force%202009/starforce2009.htm

There's some fun photos there, and it seems Richard enjoyed his stay, so that's all great.

Also, our friends friends from a website called Zakazana Planeta (Forbidden Planet) made a fun music video from the event:



So even though it been a whole month since SF, people are still talking about it, writing about it, you know... Great stuff!"


Thanks to Lukasz for the update!
