Promoting the latest Polish cinematography in the form of the collection of films on DVD is more and more visible. The perfect example is the recently released DVD edition "Polish Docs 2010", which appeared thanks to Krakow Film Foundation.
Following the example of the two DVD editions "Polish Shorts 2008" and "Polish Shorts 2009" released during last two years, containing the selection of the latest from among the short film produced in Poland, Krakow Film Foundation prepared a similar compilation - "Polish Docs 2010" with Polish documentary cinema.
The "Polish Docs 2010" DVD contains a selection of the latest and the most interesting documentary films, which were made in 2009 and 2010, having great international potential, and beginning their international career at foreign film festivals.

As earlier, the DVD will be promoted for free by the coordinators of the project at the most important foreign festivals and documentary film markets, and sent to the organizers of festivals and cultural institutions all around the world. The distribution will start at the International Documentary Film Market SUNNY SIDE OF THE DOC in La Rochelle in France, where for several years Krakow Film Foundation has been organizing and running the Polish stand. The DVD will be also promoted, among other, at such important festivals as IDFA, DOK Leipzig, Doclisboa, CPH:DOX, Doc/Fest Sheffield, Docpoint Helsinki, Hot Docs, Silverdocs, Visions du Reel.
