Over 200 professionals from Poland and abroad have already confirmed their participation, including programmers from numerous international festivals, sales agents, distributors and film producers.
As part of the event, industry representatives from around the world attend closed screenings to learn about the latest Polish films at every stage of production: they watch completed films and fragments at the post-production stage, and they also listen to pitchings about projects in production. Polish Days is an excellent opportunity for producers and filmmakers to promote their projects and to find foreign partners. During the selection process, the organizers choose the most interesting films currently being made in the Polish market. Projects presented in past years included, among others, Silent Night, Panic Attack, Breaking the Limits, Spoor, The Last Family, The Birds Are Singing in Kigali, All These Sleepless Nights, Warsaw ’44, Papusza, Floating Skyscrapers and Congress.
