After the announcements from the festival program, it's time to take a look at the industry section of the IDFA festival. There are several Polish productions among the submitted projects.

IDFA Forum will be held from 12 to 16 November as part of the IDFA International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. The Forum is looking forward to artistic, innovative documentary projects with international potential. IDFA Forum is the perfect place for producers looking for partners to co-finance or co-produce a film, as well as distributors and sales agents. 

This year, three Polish projects were invited to participate in the forum. December Grzegorz Paprzycki aims to tell the story of the dramatic events on the Polish-Belarusian border. It's produced by Maciej Kubicki from Telemark. Frontline is the working title of Alisa Kovalenko's film. It's a documentary diary from Ukraine, telling the story of women who are going to the front as soldiers in the spring of 2022. The film is a Danish and Ukrainian co-production and the film is produced by Kasia Kuczyńska from HAKA Films. The third project is Aleksandra Skowron's Underage Astronauts. The documentary also seeks to address the issue of war, this time through the eyes of the youngest. The film is produced by Mirosław Skowron from Mediolia.
