The 2020 edition of Polish Days, one of the most important industry events in Poland, will take place July 27 - 29 online. Even though the New Horizons IFF, that usually is a frame for Polish Days, has been moved to November 2020, Polish filmmakers will have a chance to take part in July events thanks to its online formula.
This year's event will feature 6 completed films, 8 as part of a presentation of works in progress, and 10 projects in development. Congratulations to all!

As part of the event, industry representatives from around the world take part in 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 listen to pitchings about projects in production. Polish Days is an excellent opportunity for producers and directors 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, Corpus Christi, Dolce Fine Giornata, Monument, Silent Night, Panic Attack!, Spoor or The Last Family.
