Jan Kwieciński, Director (Poland)

Born in 1985, Jan Kwieciński graduated from film making departments of the London Film School and the Wajda School (www.wajdaschool.pl) in Warsaw. He also holds an MA degree in Theatre Studies from the Theatre Academy in Warsaw. His professional experience includes directing short movies, documentaries, commercials and music videos. Jan has also produced short movies and worked on several film sets (e.g. Steven Spielberg’s Munich, Andrzej Wajda’s Katyn). His first short film Incident won the Best Fiction award in the 9th New Horizons IFF.

Recently, he won a competition organized by Grolsch Film Works & VICE Films and, as a result he was able to co-direct (with Alexey Fedorchenko & Harmony Korine) his first feature-length movie titled The Fourth Dimension (Vice Films, www.wix.com).

"The trends in the market are changing so fast that it is very important to be up to date with what's new and what is fresh. During the Studio we had a chance to learn more about that and moreover, we have a chance to practice how to pitch. This is a great opportunity because for a film-maker pitching is always hard and stressful and the audience is constantly changing" Kwieciński told FNE.

Currently working on:
Kwieciński is writing a feature-length script based on his short movie Incident.
