The tenth edition of Polish Days, the New Horizons International Film Festival’s leading industry event, will once again present the majority of the most highly anticipated forthcoming titles from the national film industry. Polish Days will happen entirely online from 27-29 July, even though New Horizons IFF itself won’t run on its original dates and has been postponed to 5-15 November 2020 (you can also read the interview with the festival’s artistic director, Marcin Pieńkowski). The selection of 24 film projects includes titles at every stage of production, as six completed films, eight works in progress and ten projects in development will be showcased.
