this year we are launching Warsaw Industry Days. The first edition of WID
will take place 19-21 October 2017, and it will include some new and
exciting projects like Pitch&Meet, First Cut Lab, and Doc Lab Poland,
as well as projects you know from the past, like Warsaw Screenings.
London Film Festival ends 15 October, Asian Film Market in Busan is
14-17 October, MIPCOM is 17-19 October, and Rome Film Festival starts 26 October.
We hope to see you in Warsaw!
