The project’s goal is to promote writers whose works haven’t yet been adapted to the screen, to promote literature as a source of inspiration for contemporary cinema, and to draw attention of the Polish cinema world towards literature.
As part of the cycle, MEETINGS WITH THE AUTHORS will be taking place. In their works, the authors in question offer current portrayals of Polish society (“And this is what Poland is!”).
