Submissions are now being accepted for Polish films and projects as part of Polish Days 2018, to be held July 30 – August 1, 2018, during the 18th New Horizons IFF (July 26 – August 5, 2018).

Polish Days

Polish Days, the most important industry event at the New Horizons International Film Festival, is organized jointly with the Polish Film Institute. At special closed screenings, it offers members of the international film industry opportunities to view the latest Polish projects in all stages of production, including completed films and fragments of films in postproduction as well as taking part in presentations for projects in development. As each year, organizers expect about 200 guests including sales agents, distributors, festival programmers and producers to be in attendance. Polish Days offers an unparalleled opportunity for Polish producers and filmmakers to promote their projects and plan festival strategy network with international partners.

Submission deadline: May 25

Organizers of Polish Days encourage submissions of new Polish films as well as works-in-progress (i.e. fragments of films in production) for viewing during closed screenings, as well as for projects in development to take part in a pitching session. Submission deadline: May 25, 2018.
