WAJDA STUDIO – MORE THAN A FILM STUDIO

Więcej niż studio filmowe.

Thanks to the close co-operation and support from the Polish Film Institute Wajda Studio produced over 100 documentaries, short features directed by our graduates and over 300 school films awarded and recognized at numerous international film festivals. With a strong focus on local and cross country co-production, in 2012 Wajda Studio produced its first full feature international co-production “Sanctuary”, a joint project with Ireland directed by Nora McGettigan.

In 2013 Wajda Studio Produced “Joanna”, a documentary that went to be one of the most awarded Polish productions of the decade and an Academy Award  nominee for “Best Short Subject” in 2015. Wajda Studio’s new production “The Performer” directed by Maciej Sobieszczański and Łukasz Ronduda premiered international at IFF Rotterdam 2015 and IFF Berlin 2015, where it received the THINK: FILM AWARD.
