The event will see industry representatives - programmers, sales agents, producers, film funds and distributors - from all over the world watch the latest Polish films at closed screenings.
Finished films, as well as works-in-progress will be shown at closed screenings, while many projects in development will also be pitched to the international audience, followed by one-on-one sessions.
About 170 Polish and international guests are expected in Wrocław.
Twenty-six films and projects have been selected for the industry event. Among the works shown in full at closed screenings are Karlovy Vary competition titles "The Red Spider" by Marcin Koszałka.
The popular work-in-progress section will present 10 films. These include "Baby Bump" by Kuba Czekaj, "Journals" by Wiktoria Szymańska and "Waves" by Grzegorz Zariczny.
This year's event will place emphasis on the participation of German producers and film funds. There will be a meeting of Polish and German film producers organised in co-operation with the East German film funds Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM) and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Cottbus IFF, the Polish Film Institute and Film Commission Poland.
Polish Days are co-organised with the Polish Film Institute. (jh)
