A trend is starting between festivals and academic institutions. Now New Horizons, Poland's largest film festival has announced its partnership with London Film Academy.



The New Horizons IFF is the biggest film festival in Poland. The 11. Edition will take place in Wrocław, Poland on 21-31 July 2011.

New Horizons also puts on the American Film Festival which is held in Wroclaw in November and will show American indie films in progress to potential financiers including worldwide distributors who are members of Europa Distribution. AMERICAN FILM MAKERS TAKE NOTE! This could be your entry into the international independent film business which can make 70% of your worldwide market sales.
AMERICAN DISTRIBUTRIBUTORS ALSO TAKE NOTE! This could be your entry into international cooperation on films. Europe is taking the lead here and it can only benefit the Americans who are aware and actively expanding their sphere of influence.

London Film Academy ) is an innovative film school offering professional training in all key areas of film & TV with working industry experts. LFA is partnering with the festival on its key training event for young filmmakers – the New Horizons Studio (23-26 July). During this three-day workshop the participants take part in sessions on pitching, international promotion, production, networking and world film sales. Thanks to LFA, the event will feature lectures by BAFTA-winning writer-director Richard Kwietniowski (writing and directing), executive producer Ri Chakraborty (pitching), and producer Ivana MacKinnon (producing). Other acclaimed speakers include Juliette Jansen (Rotterdam IFF), Anais Clanet (Wide Management), Beata Mońka (Canal+) and Hugo Viera da Silva (Swans). A special Masterclass will be given by the Hungarian director Bela Tarr (Satan Tango, Turin Horse).

LFA is also sponsoring the European Debut Shorts Competition by awarding the London Film Academy Award for Best European Debut Short. The director of the winning film will be awarded a full scholarship on one of LFA's Specialized Courses and accommodation for the duration of their course.
