New Films by Przemyslaw Wojcieszek, Marcin Krzysztalowicz, Jolanta Dylewska and Andrzej Wajda, will be presented to the foreign professionals during the key industry event of the 14th T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival. The organizers expect around 150 guests to attend.

Polish Days is the most important industry event at the 14.T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival (24 July – 3 August 2014), where industry representatives including programmers, sales agents, producers, film funds and distributors from all over the world watch the latest Polish films at closed screenings.

This year’s edition of Polish Days will take place on July 30 – August 1. Six completed Polish films and ten works-in-progress will be shown at closed screenings, while eleven projects will be pitched to the international audience.

Among the finished films, the representatives of the international film industry will have the chance to see "15 Corners of the World" by Zuzanna Solakiewicz, which will have its world premiere in the Films on Art International Competition at the T-Mobile New Horizons IFF and then international premiere in the Settimana della Critica section of the Locarno FF in August. Other films shown in full at the closed screenings during Polish Days include "Gods" by Lukasz Palkowski, "Call me Marianna" by Karolina Bielawska, "Performer" by Lukasz Ronduda and Maciej Sobieszczański and two films that will compete in the Main Competition of the T-Mobile International Film Festival - "How to Disappear Completely" by Przemyslaw Wojcieszek and "Calling" by Marcin Dudziak. The organisers hope to secure one extra title in the last moment before the event starts.

Projects in development presented in the pitching session include, among others, "Hungry" by Katarzyna Klimkiewicz, "I’m the Killer" by Maciej Pieprzyca, "Volhynia" by Wojciech Smarzowski, "Window" by Anna Jadowska, "Rosa" by Denijal Hasanovic and "Toxaemia" by Julia Kolberger.
