Regional fund plans September launch

Poland's Masovian region will launch a 1 million zloty (€230,000) regional film fund in September, 2009, after officially signing the fund in late April.
The fund, which covers Warsaw, is set up on the same principle as the first Polish regional film fund created in Łódź. The Masovian Marshall's Office ( www.mazovia.pl) said that by the end of the year half of the funds can be issued by the city to the filmmakers. The other half will be added by Warsaw's authorities in 2010.

The Masovian fund's mission will be to support productions connected to the region and the capital of Poland. One of the most important projects for the MFF will be a movie devoted to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Scripts for both feature and documentary films about this historical event were chosen during a competition held by the Polish Film Institute (www.pisf.pl) and the Polish Ministry of Culture, in 2006. A double First Prize in the feature category was given to 1944: Warszawa (1944:Warsaw) written Krzysztof Stecki and Tomasz Zatwarnicki as well as Ostatnia niedziela (The Last Sunday) written by Dariusz Gajewski and Przemysław Nowakowski. The documentary picture devoted to the Warsaw Uprising will be Tacy jak my (Just Like Us), a script by Katarzyna Ostrowska and Tomasz Żylski.
