March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb indeed. Some festivals are going to take place while others have been postponed in anticipation of more favourable conditions. Fortunately, the former are still going to feature Polish documentaries. Do check out where and which films will be screened at international festivals this month.
We won't forget the past year for a long time. Due to the pandemic, nearly all festivals had to change their formula or at least postpone the events themselves. Luckily, not everything has been put on hold and our documentaries have had the opportunity to appear at numerous international hybrid or online festivals. It's worth remembering that screenings were accompanied by various industry meetings, markets, and reviews. You can find all the most important events of the last year in our summary. Enjoy!
Awards have just been given out at the recently concluded DOK.incubator workshop, and one of them went to Łukasz Kowalski, the director of “The Pawnshop”.
