In Cannes, Poland’s TVP, the country’s public broadcaster, has also sold the television series Saga of the Ancient Forest, which follows the life of wild animals in the east of Poland, to the Italian distributor, A Pictures.
Meanwhile, Joanna, which focuses on Jewish history and was directed by Feliks Falk, has become the latest TVP title to get into the main competition for the Moscow Film Festival in June. Poland had five films in competition in Berlin in February and is enjoying a strong year.
Polish film reps have also signed a deal memo on submitting Venice to the Melbourne Film Festival and are negotiating with distributors in Australia and New Zealand to release the film.
