A list of projects qualified for this year's edition of Baltic Sea Docs has been announced with three Polish productions included in the selection.

Baltic Sea Docs is a pitching session combined with workshops and film screenings. The forum is intended for films originating from the Baltic countries and for films produced in other countries related to the Baltic region through its themes.

The organizers have announced a list of projects that have qualified for participation in the forum, including three projects from Poland:

"When The Harmattan Blows" is a documentary film directed by Edyta Wróblewska. The heroine is Barbara, who, despite the traumatic past, is trying to fight for a better future and happiness. She is supported by her closest friend, father Piotr.

"Nina is getting married" is the story of a 68-year-old Jehovah's Witness who unexpectedly falls in love with a younger man - Krzysztof. Not only is he younger than her, he is also Catholic. Nina's past life will be turned upside down. The film is directed by Andrzej Szypulski.

Marta Dużybabel and Agnieszka Rostropowicz-Rutkowska are producing both films through their company Pinot Films.

In turn, a new film by Konrad Szołajski is produced by Małgorzata Prociak from ZK Studio. "Waitersgate" is a documentary thriller, drawing possible scenarios of events and presenting facts and threats arising from them. In recent years, there have been more and more talk about Russia's influence on politics in Central and Eastern Europe. Journalists in several countries in the region are conducting an investigation to verify these reports. Can a reporter get to the truth? Can they discover what is hidden behind the scenes?

This year's edition of Baltic Sea Docs is to start on August 29 and last until September 4.
