Polish Film Institute (PISF)
The Polish Film Institute is the newest film institute in Europe, established in 2005 in accordance with the new cinema law, passed by the Polish Parliament. The Institute's principal task is to provide the Polish film industry with modern support mechanisms - from the development of projects and production, to promotion, distribution and circulation of Polish and European films. We support films from a concept to the screen, with particular emphasis on international co-productions. The Polish Film Institute wants to draw Polish viewers back to the theatres to watch Polish films and, at the same time, to make them worth of seeing and accessible to international audiences, particularly in Europe. The Institute welcomes all foreign partners - producers, distributors and filmmakers alike - interested in any forms of collaboration with the Polish film industry. We provide all necessary information and guidance regarding Poland, its film potential, legal regulations, locations and help to find the film professionals to collaborate with as well as potential partners for co-productions.
