Attention! Project wanted!

The “Young Producer” workshops are changing their formula. Apart from the meetings with the producers and the trainings on preparing the applications, we would like to offer our students practical help in realizing their first independent movies. During the closed part of the workshops, young producers will have an opportunity to meet the experts who will advise them on the ways of developing their projects, the kinds of financing sources that should be searched for, the places where one should head to at the beginning, in order to receive financial support for the realization of a scenario. In small groups we will analyse the chances of particular projects, the co-production possibilities and the development potential on the international market. We will discuss the strategies of sales and promotion, but we will also take a look at how similar projects are developed abroad. The students will have an opportunity to talk about the problems connected with financing their projects, and they will also be able to build a realistic structure of their financing. The program will end with a pitching, together with the representatives of the film funds from the whole Europe, producers and guests of the festival.

To take part in the workshops we would like to invite the students of production, and the graduates of film schools with small experience, who are thinking about developing their own projects, and have an already prepared, or an almost prepared, scenario. We would like to encourage you to download the entry form from our website, fill it, and send it back to the address This email address is being protected from spambots.

The workshops will be conducted in English, and the costs of participation is 140 PLN. The deadline for application is 4th October.
