WAJDA SCHOOL | WAJDA STUDIO
more than a film school | more than a film studio

“From script to screen” – this was the main idea when Andrzej Wajda and Wojciech Marczewski founded the film school in 2001 in Warsaw, Poland. Since 2011 they have also started the production company - Wajda Stu­dio, which aims to support projects with strong artistic vision.

We offer a unique combination of production and edu­cation for film professionals at international level.

In our filmography we have more than 50 documenta­ries and short fictions, more than 200 students shorts. We have had screenings and awards at the festivals such as Berli­nale, San Sebastian, Karlovy Vary, Hot Docs, IDFA and DokLeipzig.

The Studio’s mission is to search for new talents among debutants. We are looking for author- driven feature, documentary and short film projects which bring up contemporary issues. We focus on development stage and support our directors with artistic supervision from the best Polish and European filmmakers.

Best regards,
