The Wajda Studio (formerly The Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing) was founded in 2001 by two directors, some of the most acclaimed Polish artists - Andrzej Wajda, winner of an Oscar for lifetime achievement, and Wojciech Marczewski, an outstanding director and educator. Wajda Studio is focused on art house films and international co-productions.
The Wajda Studio continues the Wajda School's mission and supports auteur film projects. We are looking for feature, documentary films, and short films on contemporary subjects.
The Studio focuses on international co-operation and co-productions. The Studio makes a difference through artistic supervision from the best Polish and European artists, and by playing an emphasis on project development. It offers script doctoring and the production of short fictions and documentaries under the "30 minutes" program and „First Documentary” program. The Studio runs the EKRAN - International Program for Film Professionals.
The Studio pays special attention to the promotion and distribution of its projects.
Among the achievements of the Wajda Studio there are more than 50 documentary and feature films, and over 200 shorts. In addition, our films have been screened and awarded at major festivals including Berlinale, San Sebastian, Karlovy Vary, Hot Docs, IDFA, DOK Leipzig and European Film Awards nominee. The Studio (formerly known as the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing) has twice been awarded the Best Documentary and Short Films Producer prize at the Krakow Film Festival, in 2008 and 2010.
Among the Wajda Studio coproductions is the film "Christening" by Marcin Wrona (International premiere at IFF Toronto 2010).
In 2012, cinemas in Poland will screen the latest feature from the Studio - an Irish-Polish co-production directed by Norah McGettigan entitled "Sanctuary".
