By FNE Staff

    WROCLAW: New Horizons International Film Festival (www.nowehorizonty.pl, 19-29 July 2012) is adding a Polish Days section focusing on presenting new Polish films to an international industry audience.

    Polish Days will take place 21-23 July during the 12th edition of New Horizons IFF in Wroclaw. Both new releases and works-in-progress, selected from around 40 films produced annually, will be screened for buyers, sales agents, distributors, programmers and producers interested in Polish cinema.

    Some 400 professionals attended the festival in 2011.

    Joanna Łapińska, the festival's Artistic Director said, "The idea came after feedback from international professionals wanting to see the very latest Polish films on an exclusive basis."
