Introduction
Volker Schlöndorff and the crew of Strike, on location
Avenue of the Stars in ¸ódê
Poland has a long and distinguished history of filmmaking,
marked by names of such outstanding and internationally
acclaimed directors as Munk, Kawalerowicz, Zanussi, Wajda or
Kieslowski, and those who usually work away from home – among
them Skolimowski, Polanski and Agnieszka Holland. Poland also
takes pride in numbers of talented and highly skilled
cinematographers working on both sides of the Atlantic, including
Academy Award winner Janusz Kaminski and European Film Award
winner Pawel Edelman, to name only the two among many. It is
amazing to realize how many Polish filmmakers – not only DOPs,
but also art directors, costume designers, composers, actors etc.
– contribute to major international productions, gaining critical
acclaim and winning prestigious awards worldwide. They did not
appear out of nowhere.
Today Poland has a modern film industry, rich not only in talents
but also in opportunities for successful collaboration: virginal
unexplored locations; state-of-the-art technical facilities; skilled crew
members for every department of production and post-production;
experienced production companies specializing in international
projects and a well developed system of public support. It is no
wonder that more and more foreign producers and crews choose
Poland as the place for their projects. In 2006 alone, their ranks
included David Lynch (Inland Empire), Volker Schlöndorff (Strike),
Peter Greenaway (Nightwatching) and Ken Loach (These Times).
There was even a crew from India, shooting a Bollywood film in the
Tatra Mountains disguised as Kashmir...

Introduction
This guide was designed to help you make the best use of all the
opportunities Poland has to offer. It presents a complete and
comprehensive overview of the country and its audiovisual sector,
allowing every film professional – be it a producer, investor, director,
art director or casting director – quick and easy access to all the
necessary practical information in various fields – from
co-production opportunities, locations, the legal framework of film
production, contact information for companies in all areas of
filmmaking, hotels in every region of Poland and basic data about
the market, down to the exact hours of sunrise and sunset in every
month of the year.
Are you looking for dramatic mountain landscape or a serene
countryside with horses on lakeside pastures? Do you want to find
picturesque coastal cliffs? Or perhaps a desert (maybe not as big
as the Sahara, but located much closer)? You will find it here. Are
you looking for a medieval castle or a town street lined with fine
examples of baroque architecture? Perhaps you are searching for
a deserted mining town or a 19th century textile factory still
equipped with working machinery? You will find it here. Are you
looking for modern city landscapes filled with skyscrapers? Or the
post-industrial slums of the city? Or maybe you need several
hundreds of extras, playing striking factory workers one day, and
Napoleonic soldiers the next? A symphonic orchestra and one
hundred choir voices to perform and record your music? It can be
done here. How? This guide will let you find out.
Now for the most fundamental question: are you looking for money
for your production or – alternatively – thinking about a good place
for investment? Here you will find out about the Polish financing
system, the legal and financial regulations, and who to contact for
information and assistance in making your Polish venture
successful. As of 2005, Poland has a new film law and a system of
financial support that not only boosts the domestic film industry,
but also remains open to ideas coming from any corner of the
world.
Try us. Come to Poland. You are welcome here.

Poland
Location and Area
Poland lies in Central Europe, bordered to the north by the
Baltic Sea. The geographic coordinates of Poland are latitudes from
49°00’ to 54°50’ N and longitudes from 14°07’ to 24°08’ E. The
geometrical centre of Europe lies in the vicinity of Poland’s capital,
Warsaw. Spanning 649 km north-to-south and 689 km east-towest, Poland is also the site of the geologic division between the
eastern and western European continental blocks. The total land
area of Poland is 312,685 km2, with a territorial sea of 8,700 km2
and another 1,200 km2 of the inlets of the Oder (Szczecin)
Lagoon and Vistula Lagoon. In terms of area, Poland is the 63rd
largest country in the world, and the 9th largest in Europe. The
total length of Poland’s borders is 3,582 km, whereof (clockwise
from north): 528 km is the coastline, 210 km borders on the
Russian Federation, 103 km – Lithuania, 416 km – Belarus, 529
km – Ukraine, 539 km – Slovakia, 790 km – the Czech Republic
and 467 km – Germany.
Poland is in the Central European Time Zone (GMT + 1), along
with a number of European countries, including Spain, France,
Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.
From March to October Poland observes Daylight Saving Time
(GMT + 2).
Topography and Landscape
Poland lies in the eastern part of the geomorphological region
of the Northern European Lowlands and thus over 90% of
Poland’s area is of a lowland nature. The average altitude is 173 m,
with the highest elevation being the Rysy peak (2,499 m) of the
Tatra Mountains and the lowest depression lying in the northern
region of ˚u∏awy WiÊlane (1.8 m below sea level). There are three
key mountain chains in Poland – the Carpathian, the Sudeten, and
the Âwi´tokrzyskie (sometimes referred to as the Holy Cross
Mountains). At 1,037 km, Vistula is Poland’s longest river. There
are over 9,000 lakes exceeding 1 hectare in size, of which the
deepest are Haƒcza (108.5 m), Drawsko, Wielki Staw Polski,
Czarny Staw and Wigry.
The Polish landscape is rather diversified, with a layered structure of
geographical regions. The coastline is fairly smooth, whereas the
coast itself usually flat, with occasional sand reefs, water inlets,
sand dunes, sandy beaches and also some precipitous cliffs.
Northern Poland abounds in lakes, with the Vistula river separating
them into two regions – Pojezierze Mazurskie (the plentiful region
often called “The Land of the Great Mazurian Lakes”) in the east
and Pojezierze Pomorskie in the west. In the central part of Poland
are the Central Lowlands, with three distinct regions – Nizina
Po∏udniowowielkopolska in the southwest, the Silesian Lowland
(Nizina Âlàska) in the south and the central Mazovia (Nizina
Mazowiecka). The southern part of Poland is highly diverse in
terms of geology and landscape, consisting of highlands and
mountainous areas. This southern band consists of the Sudeten
mountains (Sudety) and the according highland (Pogórze
Sudeckie), the Silesian highland (Wy˝yna Âlàska), the highlands
surrounding Cracow (Wy˝yna Krakowsko-Cz´stochowska), the wide
hollow of the so-called Nida Trough (Niecka Nidziaƒska) and the
Holy Cross (Âwi´tokrzyskie) mountains. At the end of this highland
belt are the Carpathian mountains, consisting of the following
ranges (roughly west to east): Beskid Âlàski, Beskid Ma∏y, Beskid
Makowski, Beskid Wyspowy, Beskid ˚ywiecki, Beskid Sàdecki,
Gorce, Pieniny, the Tatra mountains, Beskid Niski, and Bieszczady.
Poland
General Information
One of the greatest assets of Poland’s nature is its unique
authenticity. The exceptional wild forest landscapes of the
Bia∏owie˝a Primeval Forest (Puszcza Bia∏owieska), some forest
reserves in eastern Poland, as well as the lowland deciduous
forests can no longer be found anywhere else in Europe. Also quite
unique are Poland’s semi-natural landscapes – such as the valley of
the river Biebrza (Kotlina Biebrzaƒska) or the Narew (Dolina
Narwii) as well as other locations, where elements of Poland’s
traditional agriculture can still be found today. Bia∏owie˝a is the only
remaining part of the primeval forest that covered all of Europe’s
lowland areas up until 1,000 years ago. Today this region is
protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere
Reserve.
The diversity of Poland’s flora and fauna is also unique on the
European scale. Poland has over 2,300 species of wild plants, over
600 species of moss, 1,600 species of lichens and about 4,000
species of fungi. Poland’s wildlife also includes approximately
9
Poland
33,000 species of animals. In addition, there are over 1,500 nature
reserves, 125 protected parks and 23 national parks in Poland, all
serving the purpose of protecting endangered species of plants
and animals.
Government and Administration
Poland is a parliamentary representative democratic republic
with a pluriform multi-party system and a bicameral parliament
elected for a four-year term by proportional representation. Internal
and foreign affair are run by the government, called the Council of
Ministers and led by the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister and his
cabinet are appointed by the President. The president is elected for
a five-year term by general election.
As of 1999, Poland is subdivided into sixteen administrative
regions called voivodships (Polish: województwo). The lower levels
of administrative division are 314 counties (powiat) and 2,478
communes (gmina). The government administration on a regional
level is represented by the voivode (wojewoda).
Poland is an active member of a number of international
organizations, including the United Nations, the International
Monetary Fund, UNESCO, the World Trade Organization, OECD,

the Council of Baltic Sea States, the Council of Europe, the Central
European Initiative (CEI) and NATO.
In 2004 Poland joined the European Union and thus Polish law is
gradually being adapted to comply with requirements set in EU
directives. The supreme act of law in Poland is the Constitution of
the Republic of Poland. The country’s official language is Polish.
Population and Cities
Poland has a population of approximately 38.6 million. In
terms of ethnicity, 98.7% of the population is Polish; ethnic
minorities include Ukrainian, Belarusian, Czech, Lithuanian, German,
Armenian, Russian, Slovakian, Jewish, Karaite, Lemko, Roma and
Tartar. 95% of Poland’s inhabitants are Roman Catholic, 1.5%
Orthodox, 1% Protestant (mostly Lutheran). 61% of the
population lives in urban areas.
There are 889 cities and towns in Poland, including 17 with a
population of over 200,000. Poland’s largest cities are Warsaw,
Lodz, Cracow, Wroc∏aw, Poznaƒ, Gdaƒsk, Szczecin, Bydgoszcz,
Lublin and Katowice. The capital city and main political, cultural,
educational, financial and industrial centre of Poland is Warsaw
(population: over 1.7 million) – a city with several centuries of
history. The oldest cities in Poland are Kalisz (9th century A.D.),
Sandomierz and Poznaƒ, but stunning historical sites are also to be
found elsewhere. The UNESCO World Heritage List includes several
locations in Poland, including the Historic Centre of Cracow, the
Historic Centre of Warsaw, the Medieval Town of Toruƒ, the Old
City of ZamoÊç, the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork, the
Mannerist Architectural and Park Landscape Complex in Kalwaria
Zebrzydowska, the Wieliczka Salt Mine, the Wooden Churches of
Southern Poland, the Churches of Peace in Jawor and Swidnica, the
Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp and the Centennial Hall in
Wroc∏aw. The city of Cracow was also chosen to be one of
European Capitals of Culture in the year 2000.

By rail
Poland has one of the most extensive railway networks in the
world, with a total of over 200,000 km. All major cities and most
small towns are connected by rail. The leading operator of rail
infrastructure in Poland is the state-run PKP Group, which offers
services in passenger and cargo transportation.
According to the 2007 timetable, the Polish State Railways operate
38 international railway connections offered by the following
services: EuroNight, EuroCity, Express, the Cheap Railway Line
(TLK) and regular international connections (daytime and
nighttime). The following services are available:

By air
There are twelve civilian airports in Poland catering for
domestic and international passenger flights. The largest and most
important of these is the Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (formerly
known as Ok´cie International Airport). The other airports are in
Cracow, Gdaƒsk, Katowice, Poznaƒ, Wroc∏aw, Szczecin, ¸ódê,
Bydgoszcz, Zielona Góra and Rzeszów.
The Warsaw airport has over 80 regular connections to major cities
in Poland and abroad. In 2006 three national and 34 foreign air
carriers had regular flights to and from Warsaw, including British
Airways, Lufthansa, SAS, Air France, Alitalia and KLM. However, the
largest air carrier in Poland is LOT Polish Airlines.
The Polish air transport market is one of the fastest developing
markets in the world. The growth rate was greatly increased after
Poland’s entry into the EU and the introduction of low-cost airline
carriers, such as Centralwings, Wizz Air, Sky Europe, easyJet and
Ryanair. Poland’s central location in Europe is also a key factor
– any major city in Europe is a maximum 2-3 hour flight from
Warsaw, Cracow or Gdaƒsk.

Poland
Crossing the Border
Currency and Prices
Poland’s accession to the European Union meant a change in
regulations concerning right of entry for all EU citizens. EU
regulations apply also to citizens of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein
and Switzerland – countries that are not part of the EU but based
on bilateral and multilateral agreements participate in the free of
movement of persons. Entry into Poland is allowed to foreigners
holding a valid travel document or other document confirming
identity and citizenship. Citizens of the Russian Federation, Belarus
and Ukraine must carry identity documents and visas issued by
Polish consulates. Some citizens are exempt from the visa
requirement, while visas for Ukrainian citizens are free of charge.
The official currency in Poland is the Polish zloty (PLN) divided
into 100 groszy. The currency comes in banknotes of 10, 20, 50,
100 and 200 PLN and coins of 1, 2 and 5 PLN as well as 1, 2, 5,
10, 20 and 50 groszy (abbreviated: gr.).
At the request of immigration officers, a foreigner entering Poland
should present means of covering the costs of entering and leaving
the country, as well as the entire duration of one’s stay at an
approximate cost of 27 EUR (100 PLN) per day. This can be
presented in the form of cash (Polish zloty or convertible
currencies), valid credit cards or traveler’s cheques.

When the duration of one’s stay in Poland is to exceed 90 days, it
is necessary to obtain a temporary residence permit. This requirement does not apply to persons working in Poland who have
permanent residence in another EU country where they return at
least once a week.
Poland
When crossing the border, EU citizens are entitled to carry goods
intended for “personal use” without additional taxes or excise
duties. If a traveler can’t present a sensible reason for possessing
large amounts of goods, and customs officers have reason to
believe that the merchandise is intended for sale, it is possible that
the goods will be confiscated, along with the vehicle carrying them.
The following indicative quantities are generally recognized as
intended for personal use: 800 cigarettes, 200 cigars, 1 kg of
tobacco, 10 litres of spirits, 20 litres of apéritifs or intermediate
products (e.g. sherry, port wine), or 110 litres of beer. Travelers
under 17 years of age are not allowed to carry alcohol or tobacco
products.
Since the political transition took place in Poland, the exchange
rates have become stable. There are however some natural
fluctuations in exchange rates. The values presented below should
therefore be treated as approximates.

Poland
The most secure way of exchanging currency are banks, although
they offer slightly lower exchange rates and some charge a 2-3%
commission. Banks in Poland are open Monday to Friday, usually
from 9 am to 5 pm, some also on Saturdays until 1 pm.
Every bank in Poland has a network of its own ATMs, although
access to these may be limited in rural areas. All major debit and
credit cards are accepted in Poland – Access/MasterCard, American
Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, JCB and Visa. Most banks in Poland
allow cash withdrawals from credit cards.
Poland is a relatively inexpensive country – food, public
transportation, admission tickets, even accommodation are
considerably cheaper than in Western European countries. Naturally,
prices in major cities are higher than in rural areas. It is safe to
assume some average prices for Poland: a large pizza will cost
about 5 euros; a three-course middle-class restaurant dinner will be
about 15-20 euros; a cross-country train ticket – about 35 euros;
a room in a 5-star hotel – 250 euros.

Climate
Poland enjoys a temperate climate of transitional nature
between the continental and maritime. Weather patterns are rather
unstable, especially during seasonal changes and wintertime.
Winters in Poland are usually of the oceanic type with high
precipitation; less common are fair weather continental winters.
Northern and western Poland has a mostly maritime temperate

Poland
Poland has a relatively high rate of changes in long-term weather
patterns. There is a total of six distinct seasons – in addition to
spring, summer, autumn and winter, there are the uniquely Polish
seasons of early spring (przedwioÊnie) and early winter (przedzimie). During the early spring period which lasts up to a month,
the average daily air temperature ranges from 0°C to 5°C. Spring in
Poland usually lasts about 60 days and has an average daily
temperature of 5°C to 15°C. With temperatures above 20°C,
summer in Poland begins in May and lasts up to four months,
followed by autumn, when the average temperature once again
drops to between 15°C and 5°C. With the start of the early winter
period, usually lasting about six weeks, temperatures drop below
5°C. Wintertime sees a relatively long period of cold weather and
frost – the early spring period does not begin until late February or
early March, and even then only in the mild climate areas of
northern and western Poland. Northeastern Poland is the last of
the regions to see spring, usually at the end of March.
Cloud Cover and Precipitation
The number of cloudy days in Poland is between 60 and 70
percent. The cloudiest period is November, and the clearest months
are August and September. The average annual number of cloudy
days (i.e. when the sky is 80% overcast) is 120-160, and the
number of sunny days (i.e. cloudiness below 20%) is 30-50.
With predominantly westerly winds in Poland, the highest
precipitation occurs on western mountain slopes. In the Carpathian
and Sudeten mountains the average annual precipitation is
800-1400 mm, while in the lowland and highland regions it ranges
from 400 mm to 750 mm. The lowest precipitation levels are in
eastern Wielkopolska and in the Kujawy region. The summer
months are characterized by the most rainfall in a year, usually 2-3
times higher than in wintertime (and 4 times higher than in the
Carpathian mountains). The average number of days with snowfall
ranges from 30-40 days in western and central Poland to over 50
days in the northeast. The Karkonosze mountains have 120 days,
and the Tatras have 145 days of snowfall per year. Snow also
stays the longest in the mountains (up to 200 days) and in
northwestern Poland (90-120 days). The least number of days
with snow cover is in the western regions (40-50 days).
Temperatures
The average annual temperature in Poland ranges from 5-7°C
to 8-10°C. The hottest month of the year is July, with an average
temperature of 16-19°C. The coolest areas in July are the
mountains, where the air temperature drops as altitude increases.
The uppermost parts of the Tatra and Sudeten mountains have an
average July air temperature of just 9°C. July is also cooler in areas
adjacent to the Baltic Sea (about 16°C.). The hottest area is
central Poland, with temperatures exceeding 18°C. Hot days with
temperatures exceeding 25°C occur between May and September.
Their number in the south of Poland is relatively higher than in the
northern regions.
The coldest month in Poland is January, with northeastern regions
being the coolest part of the country. The average annual number
of days with sub-zero temperatures ranges from about 25 to 65,
while in the mountains it can be 132 days, and sometimes even
150 days. The number of days with ground frost, typically in late
spring and early autumn, ranges from 90 to 130 in the lowlands,
while in the mountains it exceeds 200.
Winds
Poland
climate, with mild winters and cool summers and high precipitation.
Sever winters and hot, dry summers are more common in eastern
parts of the country.
The winds in Poland are typically weak to moderate, with
speed ranging from 2 to 10 metres per second. Strong and very
strong winds usually occur at the seaside, causing sea storms, and
also in the mountains, where their speed often exceeds 30 m/s.
Hurricanes are uncommon in Poland, however the mountain halny
wind is notorious for uprooting trees and blowing off roofs. Halny is
a type of wind known to most mountainous regions of the world,
usually known under the general name of föhn winds. It brings
higher temperatures and lower air humidity. It is a nuisance for
most people, as it lowers psychophysical strength and causes
irritability. Another local Polish wind is the refreshing Baltic sea
breeze.

Pomerania has hundreds of kilometres of coastline with sandy
beaches, thousands of clean lakes, and spectacular woodlands rich
in wildlife. The region is home to twelve landscape and three
national parks. The S∏owiƒski National Park deserves special
mention – being one of the most widespread areas of shifting
dunes in Europe. Wolin National Park on the other hand is
charming with its stunning coastline cliffs. Traces of prehistoric
human settlements can be found in the park, as well as trenches
and bunkers – remnants of World War II.

The largest cities of Pomerania are: Gdaƒsk, Gdynia and Sopot
(also called Tri-City), Szczecin, Koszalin and S∏upsk. Many people
consider the 1,000 year old Gdaƒsk to be the most beautiful of
Polish cities. It is also a key heritage site. Most historic monuments
in Gdaƒsk are located in the Main Town (Main Town Hall, Artus
Palace, Uphagen House) and in the Old Town (the Great Mill, Old
Town Hall, St. Catherine’s Church). Numerous others are settled
along Gdaƒsk’s main walking street D∏uga. St. Mary’s Church in
Gdaƒsk is the largest medieval brick edifice in Europe. Other
important sites around Gdaƒsk include: Westerplatte, Oliwa and the
famous Gdaƒsk Shipyard. Europe’s longest wooden pier is to be
found in the popular beach resport of Sopot. The Hel Peninsula
and its largest town Hel are home to a Fishing Museum, historical
Kashubian settlements, a marine research centre of the University
of Gdaƒsk, a lighthouse, fishing port and an abundance of military
installations. In the town of ¸eba one can admire beautiful sandy
beaches and the famous shifting dunes.
Another key city in Pomerania is Malbork – the medieval
capital of the Teutonic knights order and Europe’s
largest Gothic fortress. The castle complex
consists of three castles, with a total area of
over 20 hectares. Some of the world’s
most spectacular examples of Gothic
architecture are to be found here,
including the famous High Castle
with its four wings and magnificent
double-level galleries. The
western part of Pomerania is
home to the town of Mi´dzyzdroje.
Its key attractions include a 300
metre pier and the famous Stars’
Promenade with hand imprints of
Poland’s prominent filmmakers.
ÂwinoujÊcie – the only Polish city
situated on tens of islands – has one
of the largest sea ports in Poland. The
region’s westernmost major city is Szczecin,
with many splendid examples of architecture
ranging from the13th to the 18th century.

Poland
The region consists predominantly of lowlands, with some
moraine uplands, proglacial stream valleys and channel lakes,
meadowlands, bogs and forests, with the majority of its area
covered with farmlands. The western part of Wielkopolska is
densely covered with woods and forests, with some of them being
very unique, e.g. the Noteç River Primaeval Forest. The region is
also very rich in surface water reservoirs – the lakes which create
picturesque lake districts and the Odra, Warta, Noteç and Bóbr
rivers. The local national parks and landscape reserves are the
habitat for some rare species of animals, e. g. fallow deer, raccoon
dogs, muskrats, or white eagles. One of the most precious
examples of the natural richness present in the region is a
750-years-old oak called “Chrobry”, after Poland’s first king, and
with trunk diameter of approximately 10 meters. The oak grows in
the town of Piotrowice.

The main cities of the region are Poznaƒ, Gorzów Wielkopolski,
Pi∏a, Zielona Góra, Kalisz (the oldest Polish city), and Konin. The
most precious historical sights include the remains of the
pre-Roman buildings dating back to the beginnings of the Polish
state. Examples of theses buildings can be found in Poznaƒ,
Gniezno and Ostrów Lednicki. The list of interesting sights also
includes: the Poznaƒ Cathedral which, among other precious
exhibits, houses the tombs of the first Polish rulers; the magnificent
Fara Church, and the Renaissance Town Hall. The Cathedral in
Gniezno dates back to the 10th century and since then it has been
the worship place of St. Wojciech (St. Adalbert); visitors to the
Cathedral may admire many precious and unique exhibits of
religious arts. The town of Zielona Góra, west from Poznaƒ, should
be mentioned for its very picturesque historic tenement houses
located in the town centre, as well as a spectacular palm house
seated on the peak of the Vineyard Hill; this town takes pride from
having a long-lasting tradition of wine making. A 13th century
cathedral and historic granaries can be seen in Gorzów
Wielkopolski. The miniature town of ¸agów, seated within a
landscape park and surrounded by lakes, is known for its very
spectacular panorama with a castle as the main focus point. The
towns of Krosno Odrzaƒskie, Bytom Odrazƒski, Ko˝uchów and
˚agaƒ have still preserved their historic urban layout, with the
remains of defense walls, monumental town halls and beautiful
church buildings. The greatest castles in the region can be found in
Kórnik and Go∏uchów, whereas the most beautiful palaces and
manors are to be seen in G∏´bice, Rogalin or Âmie∏ów. The village
of GoÊcikowo-Parady˝ is famous for the Cistercian Monastery
which has been vibrant with life until these very days. The region is
also rich in many military buildings and constructions of some
historic importance and dating back to WW II, for example, the
bunker complex in the Mi´dzyrzec Strategic Defense System. From
the village of Boryszyn, tours are organized for those keen to visit
this spectacular underground military world.

Despite the fact that the region of Silesia is highly
industrialized, the nature has still been preserved here with many
beautiful spots and sights. One of them is the Lower Silesia Forest
– one of the largest in Europe and the largest in Poland forest
complex. Its landscape is enriched by postglacial hills and river
valleys. The Silesia is also famous for its spectacularly picturesque
mountains – the Beskid Mountains and the Sudety with the
Karkonosze and Sto∏owe chains. In the Middle Ages, the Sudety
Mountains used to have the nick name of the Treasury of Europe
due to its gold deposits; it is said that gold still can be found there.
The Karkonosze National Park is rich in waterfalls, precipices, grassy
mountain peaks and chasms created by glaciers. The Sto∏owe
Mountains – charmingly looking mountains resembling tables – are
a perfect example of slab mountains built of layers of cracked
sandstone. One of the most enchanting places to be found among
these mountains is the B∏´dne Ska∏y maze covering an area of 20
hectares.

Cities and Historic Sites
The larges urban agglomeration in Poland lies in the Silesia
region, with Katowice being the larges town. The region is

and Gdaƒsk, one of the most beautiful cities in Poland. The most
significant historical sights located in this city include the Gothic
church complex of buildings, the largest of this type in Poland and
dating back to the Middle Ages, the Town Hall regarded as one of
the most beautiful medieval buildings in Europe, as well as
numerous bridges connecting various parts of the old town. The
town of K∏odzko, with its 1,000-year-long history, is famous for its
historical square market, tenement houses, churches, mighty
fortress and underground touring route connecting old merchants’
basements and cellars. Very precious historical sights can be visited
in Jelenia Góra, Wa∏brzych, Legnica, Âwidnica, Boles∏awiec, Bolków,
Niemcza, Trzebnica, Strzegom, Strzelin, as well as in many other
cities, towns and villages across the region. The St. Ann Mountain is
a home for a Baroque complex of church buildings; the nearby
basalt quarry is the place where the largest in Europe open-air
amphitheatre can be visited. Some of the most precious historical
sights in the Silesia region also include the Cistercian Monastery in
Lubià˝, the Baroque abbey in Krzeszów, the Basilica in
Wambierzyce and the Benedictine Monastery in Pole Legnickie.
Those visitng Silesia can also come across numerous castles and
castle ruins; the larges ones are located in Ksià˝, Chojnik, Grodno
and Czocha. Some smaller castles have become part of the
so-called the Eagles’ Nest Route with something like 25 historical
buildings located on the rout exceeding almost 163 kilometers.
One of the most interesting architectural sights is the palace in
Moszna – the most charming building consisting of 365 rooms
and almost 99 towers and turrets.
The Silesia region is also famous for its underground attractions,
namely numerous historical coal mines and mysterious underground
corridors located in Walim and G∏uszyca, still hiding some
undisclosed secrets of WW II; all these places are accessible for
tourists and visitors.

Geographical Location
Ma∏opolska and Lubelszczyzna lie in the south-east part of
Poland comprising four voivodships: ma∏opolskie, Êwi´tokrzyskie,
lubelskie and podkarpackie.
Landscape
Poland
The landscape of this region is quite varied, with lowlands,
wavy hills, and areas rich in deep, narrow and winding ravines, as
well as high mountains. In the south-east, the Roztocze Hills are
covered with forests full of mountain springs and waterfalls. The
north part of the region is full of lakes, rivers, canals and bogs. In
the south, the Tatra Mountains – still wild and covered in snow
– spread along the Polish border; they are the highest mountains
between the Caucasus and the Alps. Nearby lie the Pieniny
Mountains with the untamed mountainous river of Dunajec fiercely
cutting its way through the limestone rock; from those mountains,
tourists can enjoy a spectacular view of the Gorce Mountains and
the rolling slopes of the Beskid Mountains. All these mountain
chains in the region hide many caves, with the most famous one
– the Wielka Ânie˝na cave, 824 metres deep and more than 22
kilometres long. However, the most famous caves – the ¸okietek
and Ciemna caves – can be found in the Kraków and Cz´stochowa
Jura Hills, near the Ojców National Park. The entire area of this
national park is full of most astonishing rock formations created by
the Pràdnik river almost 150 million years ago. The region also
encloses the only Polish natural desert – the B∏´dowska Desert.
Although the sand temperature there can occasionally reach almost
70ºC, this is not exactly a desert area in the climatic terms. The
last sand storms and Fata Morgana were reported there in the 20th
century.

Cities and Historic Sites
Poland
The Dunajec River, the Tatra Mountains
Poland Tour
The main cities of the region are Kraków, Lublin, Rzeszów,
Kielce, PrzemyÊl and Tarnów, with Kraków being the most famous
and importan of all. The number of historic sights to be found in
this city is simply countless. Almost half of the Polish properties
included in the UNESCCO world heritage list can be found in the
Ma∏opolskie Voivodship alone: the Cracow’s Historic Centre, the
Wieliczka Salt Mine, the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, Kalwaria
Zebrzydowska: the Mannerist Architectural and Park Landscape
Complex and Pilgrimage Park, and the Wooden Churches of
Southern Poland (in Binarowa, D´bno, Lipnica Murowana and
S´kowa). Some other most significant architectural sights worth
visiting in the region include the Benedictine Monks Monastery in
Tyniec, the castles in Piaskowa Ska∏a (the Sand Rock Mountain),
Niedzica, Baranów Sandomierski, as well as the local castle ruins
with the most interesting ones in Ogrodzieniec. The historic town
list consists of Kraków, Lublin and of course ZamoÊç – the Urban
Pearl of Renaissance. This list, however, would remain incomplete if
two more cities were not mentioned; first of all Zakopane, the most
famous Polish mountain resort and winter sport centre, and finally
Kazimierz upon Vistula River – the town favoured among Polish
artists.
The region is also a cultural melting pot, hence the presence of
numerous orthodox churches, synagogues and Jewish
commentaries; but probably the most significant example of this
cultural diversity ever visible in the region is the well-known and
loved Jewish part of Kraków – Kazimierz.

Poland
The region is set mainly in flat and wavy lowlands, however, the
scenery is also rich in the variety of small moraine hills, river valleys
and sand dunes along the Vistula and Bug river valleys and on the
Kurpie Lowland. The areas in the middle Vistula river basin,
between the towns of Wyszogród and P∏ock, are basically still wild,
with numerous islands to be found on the river. These islands have
become habitats for impressive numbers of rare bird species.
Although the Mazowsze region is actually poor in forests, a number
of forest complexes can still be found here, e. g. the Kampinos,
Kurpie, Bia∏y or Kozienice Forests. The highest hills in the region
consist of some parts of the Karaków – Wieluƒ Jura Hills and the
Opoczno Hills.

Cities and Historic Sites
The Royal Castle in Wilanów, Warsaw
Panorama of Warsaw
Undoubtedly, the largest city in the region is Warsaw, housing
the greatest number of historic sites; the most precious ones are:
two palace complexes, i.e. Wilanów and ¸azienki, and the Royal
Tract with its numerous palaces and Baroque churches. P∏ock, the
town situated north-west from the capital city of Warsaw, is famous
for its complex of buildings called “Tumski Hill” with the castle ruins
and the Renaissance cathedral. The monastery and the Roman
church located in Czerwiƒsk belong to the most precious historic
buildings in the Mazowsze Region. Gothic and Renaissance castles,
as well as some preserved ruins of castles can be visited in Czersk,
Chiechanów, Liwie and Szyd∏owiec. One of the best preserved
manors in the region is the late Gothic manor and fortress in
Oporów. The castle located in Piotrków Trybunalski also served as
a fortress. In the Kurpie area, some old customs of the long-lived
folk culture and tradition are still being preserved, e. g. in the towns
of Muszyniec and Kadzid∏o. The town of Wyszogród is famous for
its wooden bridge, the longest bridge of this type in Poland. The
town of Modlin, also situated in the region, takes pride from its
fortress built by Napoleon.
One of the most interesting towns in the Region is ¸ódê; this is
probably the most remarkable and important place for the Polish
film makers. The town is said to house almost 1,000 historic
architectural sites, including Renaissance palaces, Baroque and
neo-Gothic churches, and numerous secession and eclectic
apartment houses. However, ¸ódê is most famous for its old and
historic industrial buildings accompanied by the residences of their
former owners.

Geographical Location
The historical Kuyavia (Kujawy) region lies today in the
kujawsko-pomorskie voivodship, in the northernmost part of central
Poland.
Landscape
Set in the basin of the Vistula and Notec rivers, the key
characteristic of the landscape of Kuyavia is its extremely dense
water network.

Locations C Kuyavia
The main waterways are the Vistula River and its tributaries
– Drw´ca, Brda and Wda. The western part of the region is
dominated by the Notec river. The region has approximately 1,000
post-glacial lakes with an area of over one hectare, the largest of
them being Gop∏o.
Kuyavia is a rather poorly wooded area of Poland, although it
is home to the Tuchola Forest (Bory Tucholskie) – Poland’s second
largest woodland. The Bory Tucholskie National Park and its
impressive pinewood forests are home to rare species of animals,
including the black stork – a species generally uncommon in
Poland.

Cities and Historic Sites
The main cities of Kuyavia are Bydgoszcz, Toruƒ, W∏oc∏awek
and Grudziàdz. Each of these towns has a unique blend of the old
and the contemporary. With its many remaining medieval
fortifications, Copernicus’ hometown of Toruƒ is a true reserve of
Gothic architecture. Castle ruins, historic townhouses and granaries,
St. John’s Cathedral with one of Poland’s oldest bells and baptismal
fonts. Bydgoszcz lies on the Brda River, in a densely wooded area.
The city is famous for its valuable art nouveau architecture and
Gothic churches. Numerous Teutonic castles remind us of the
medieval knights’ reign over this land. The largest of these castles
are located in Go∏ub-Dobrzyƒ and Radzyƒ Che∏miƒski. The ruins in
Radzyƒ are relatively unknown, although in terms of size they are
comparable with the famous site at Malbork. Kuyavia is also home
to a number of the earliest settlements in Poland, the most
prominent of them being Kruszwica, Biskupin, Strzelno and
Mogilno. Biskupin is an example of Iron Age fortified settlements of
the ancient Lusatian culture. Kruszwica, Strzelno and Mogilno are
home to several well-preserved examples of sacral Roman
architecture. Traditional folk architecture can be found not only at
regional ethnographic museums and heritage parks, but also in
local villages.

Geographical Location
The Warmia and Mazury administrative region lies in the
north-east part of Poland. It consist of three historical lands called
in Polish: Warmia, Mazury and PowiÊle. Due to its great natural
environment, the Region is regarded as one of the most beautiful
areas in entire Poland.

Poland
The Warmia and Mazury Region is commonly called the land of
a thousand lakes (the Polish Lake District), although the real
number of lakes should be doubled. The largest lakes are the
Âniardwy and Mamry Lakes. The lakes, canals and rivers create
here a system of water routes, extending for many kilometres,
making it possible to travel from town to town by water. The
Region is also impressively rich in woods and forests which cover
almost 30% of its entire area. The Mazury forests remain still the
habitat for rare species of animals, including one extremely precious
rarity – a hind with horns. Other examples include a nature reserve
for tarpan horses near Popielno and a swan nature reserve on the
¸uknajno lake, the largest reserve of this kind in Europe.

The capital city of the Region is Olsztyn, a town with a
history dating back to the 14th century. The oldest and most
precious historical buildings which can be found here include
a Jerusalem Chapel, the Castle and the Town Hall. One of the
attractions that can be visited in the town is also an astronomical
observatory. Five lakes located within the town boundaries are
a value added tourist attraction. The historical presence of the
Teutonic Knights in the Region is heavily marked by a number of
castles, some in ruins, that can be found in places like Nidzica,
Moràg, Pas∏´k, Lubawa, Elblàg, Szymbark (one of the largest
castles of the Teutonic Knights in Mazury), Szczytno, K´trzyn,
W´gorzewo, Ryn and Barcice. Another important landmark, located
in the Region, is Grunwald, a battlefield famous for the defeat
suffered by the army of the Teutonic Knights during one of the
largest battles fought in the Medieval Europe. Orneta, a small city
north of Olsztyn, is famous for its gothic parish church surrounded
by numerous and attractive in their design chapels; the facade of
the church is decorated with a ceramic frieze. Lidzbark Warmiƒski is
one of the most interesting towns in Warmia with its bishops’
residence castle dating back to the 14th and 15th century. The
Church residence consists of a castle and the Gothic wings, located
on the lower castle, which were reconstructed and adopted for the
bishops’ residence in the 18th century. The castle is surrounded by
a moat and a wall with two towers. Some more ruins of the
defence walls and three towers can be also found inside the town
itself. Two 14th century churches are to be found in the town called
Bartoszyce; nearby a small town of Reszel stands with its still

well-preserved and even more charming medieval urban design,
with a castle surrounded by a wall and a moat, and two Gothic
bridges crossing the local river. Frombork, another worth-visiting
town in the Region, is located by the Vistula Lagoon and is famous
for its extensive fortifications with a defence wall and two towers all
seated on the Cathedral Hill. The Copernicus Tower, also located
there, houses a few meter high Foucault pendulum – the only one
in Poland. Other interesting sights in the Region include: an
ethnographic park, one of the largest in Poland, in Olsztynek;
a castle in Ostróda; a castle in Kamieniec Suski in which Napoleon
once stayed; two French cannons manufactured in 1870 and
decorating the entrance to the Town Hall in Moràg; a renovated
neo-Gothic palace, built as a replica of Babelsberg, in a small town
of Baloszyce; a similar building constructed around the same time
in Sorkwity.
The Mazury Region has always had the reputation of being
Poland’s main sailing centre, with towns such as Miko∏ajki, Gi˝ycko,
Ruciane-Nida and Sztynort being the larges water sport centers.
One of the most unique sights in the Region, even in the worldwide perspective, is the Ostróda – Elblàg canal; this is a 19th
century system of water-powered skipways allowing ships to travel
over land for the distance of 9.6 km covering the difference in
water level of 100 m. “Wilczy Szaniec” – the former field quarters
of Adolf Hitler – are still covered deep in mystery. The sight is
located in Gier∏o˝, near Lidzbark Warmiƒski. Another complex of
bunkers, still ideally preserved, is also located nearby, in the town of
Mamerki; it is supposed to have served as the field quarters for
Heinrich Himmler.

The Bia∏owie˝a Forest
The landscape of Podlasie is particularly impressive due to its
wide-spreading forests which are protected by four national reserve
parks. The Bia∏owie˝a forest is the largest, still preserved natural
forest in Europe and namely the last European natural forest with
unmatched richness of fauna and flora. The trees, some of which
are 126 years old, form a habitat for the largest European mammal
– ˚ubr (European bison). The Wigry lake is the most precious
stone of the local nature with its numerous islands, bays and
peninsulas. The Region also houses overflow areas of two wild
rivers – Biebrza and Narew. The Biebrza overflow is the most
extensive and best preserved natural lowland bog system in
Europe, with approximately 200 bird species, moose, beavers and
otters still living there in the wild.

Cities and Historic Sites
The Region has no large urban aglomerations, but a number
of tiny towns and villages. The capital city of the Region is
Bia∏ystok, a town developed around the manor belonging once to
the noble family of Branicki. The baroque manor of the Branicki
family still impresses with its beauty and is called the Versailles
of Podlasie. Bia∏ystok is surrounded by the Knyszyƒski natural
forest. The Tatar Route passes nearby with its main town of Sokó∏a
and two mosques located in the villages of Bohoniki and
Kruszyniany. A historic fortified town of ¸om˝à, located by the
Narew river and in the neighbourhood of the Kurpiowski natural
forest belongs to one of the larges towns in the Region. The Narew
River National Park surrounds the historic town of Tykocin.
The cultural richness of the Podlasie Region can be seen in the
ethnographic park located in Nowogród, among the picturesque
hills where the Pisa river enters the Narew river. The eastern part
of the Region constitutes a cultural frontier where Byelorussians
and Ukrainians live; hence the large number of beautiful Orthodox
churches and chapels and one of very few in Europe schools
of icon painting in Bielsk Podlaski. A very interesting and modern
Orthodox church can be found in the nearby town of Hajnówka.
The town of Suwa∏ki, built in a classicism style, is very rich in
museum collections documenting the history and culture of the
historic Jacwingowie Baltic tribe. Two small historic towns of
Drohiczyn and Mielnik were built upon a steep and high
embankment overlooking the Bug river valley, as well as the nearby
town of Siemiatycze. Some picturesque views resembling
mountainous landscapes can be admired in the village of Smolniki.
The nearby towns of Sejny and Puƒsk and their surrounding areas
are populated by a large number of Lithuanians. Finally, the town
of Osowiec famous for its 19th century fortifications.

Polish Law
In a 2006 report published in the Financial Times Poland ranked
5th among top investment destinations in the world. Its central
geographic location, large territory and a nearly 40-million market
continue to attract a growing number of foreign investors. Thanks
to dynamic political and economic changes in recent years Poland
has taken a major leap in virtually every sphere of life – including
the media. Poland has become a popular destination among foreign
documentary film crews and feature film producers.
Business Law
The process of rapprochement between Poland and Western
Europe deepened along with transitional changes of Polish politics
and economy. The key steps were taken with the signing of the
trade and economic cooperation agreement between Poland and
the European Community in 1989 (ratified in 1991), the
Association Agreement between Poland and the European
Community (1994), with Polish parliament passing the new
Economic Activity Law in 1998 and finally with Poland’s entry into
the EU in 2004. Thanks to new regulations guaranting equal rights
to foreign entities and the new Cinematography Act of 2005, the
activity of foreign entities in the Polish film industry
does not require any special permits. The only exception
to this rule is television broadcasting in Poland, which requires
acquiring a concession from the National Broadcasting Council.
Based on references in appropriate legal texts, any foreign
entrepreneur regardless of the country of origin can operate freely
in the film industry in Poland and with no additional formalities. The
basic legal framework set by the Act on Freedom of Economic
Activity of 2 July 20041 is as follows:
1. see: Act of 2 July on Freedom of Economic Activity, Polish Official Journal (Dziennik Ustaw –
Dz.U.) 2004, no. 173, item 1807.
1. An entrepreneur is any prson, organization or non-corporate
organizational unit with legal capacity conducting economic
activity on its own behalf. The legal status of an entrepreneur
can take the form of a partnership (Polish: spó∏ka
partnerska), registered partnership (spó∏ka jawna),
unlimited partnership (spó∏ka komandytowa) and limited
company (spó∏ka z ograniczonà odpowiedzialnoÊcià) with the
latter being the most common form in the film industry. An
entrepreneur can also be a natural person with registered
business activity (i.e. sole trader). General partnerships (spó∏ka
cywilna) are not entrepreneurs as defined above, however their
particular members are considered as such.
Poland
Polish Law
2. The State can provide entrepreneurs with public aid only on
terms and in forms clearly stated in separate provisions. Public
aid must be granted with respect to the rules of fair competition
and equal rights.
3.
Foreigners from Member States of the European
Union and European Free Trade Association may
undertake and conduct economic activity on the
same terms and conditions as Polish
entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs whose country of origin is
other than the above mentioned group may undertake and
conduct economic activity in Poland only in the form of a
joint-stock company, limited company, limited partnership or
limited joint-stock partnership and take over or acquire shares in
these entities.
Polish regulations distinguish between “foreign persons” (persons,
organizations or non-corporate organizational unit with permanent
registered offices outside their country of origin) and “foreign
entrepreneurs” (foreign persons conducting economic activity
outside their country of origin). This enhances the significance of
whether economic activity is conducted within the entrepreneur’s
country of origin or abroad. In addition to direct investment in
Poland, Polish law allows foreign entities to establish agencies and
branches2.
2. see: Tax Ordinance Act of 29 August 1997 with further changes; Dziennik Ustaw (Dz.U.)
2005, no. 8, item 60.
101
Polish Law
Obligations of Entrepreneurs
In the light of Polish law, economic activity is clearly defined as
bearing the following traits: professional character (permanent and
professional activity, as opposed to occasional and amateur),
subordination to the rules of profitability and profit, repeatability of
operations and participation in economic turnover. An entrepreneur
may commence economic activity only after being registered in the
Entrepreneurs Register of the National Court Registry (Krajowy
Rejestr Sàdowy) or in the Economic Activity Registry. The
entrepreneur must oblige to rules of fair competition (as set by EU
regulations, which prohibit monopolistic practices, concentrated
(cartel) practices, dumping pricing policies, illegal concentration
etc.), follow regulations determining the terms and conditions of
economic activity (particularly regulations concerning safety, public
ethics and environment protection) and, when required by law,
employ only properly trained and skilled professionals. Other key
obligations of the entrepreneur in Poland include:
C obtaining a tax identification number (NIP) at the appropriate tax
office and using it in official business conduct (professional
correspondence, tender, company seals etc.),
C obtaining an identity number based on the type of activity
(REGON) at the Statistical Office,
C registration of the company and payment of contributions to the
Social Insurance Office (ZUS) when employing staff,
C opening a bank account and using it for all transactions,
C issuing monthly returns and paying taxes (i.e. VAT, income tax,
prepayment on payroll tax etc.) to the local Tax Office,
C submitting financial statements and statistical reports as required by
appropriate regulations
Business regulations in Poland are rather numerous and their
number continues to grow, therefore running a business requires
continuous professional monitoring. Any kind of tax exemptions,
investment tax relief and issues of avoiding double taxation must
be consulted and confirmed by appropriate authorities before
undertaking business conduct.
102
The New Act on Cinematography
The State holds patronage over the film industry in Poland.
Public funds are granted for film production, selected festivals and
events, developing filing systems, education and professional
training, as well as promotion of Polish film abroad.
The key organization in the film industry is the Polish Film Institute,
established in accordance with the Act on Cinematography of 30
June 20053, which at the same time is the the key regulation act
for the film industry. This long-awaited document introduces new
compulsory sources of financing film production (feature,
documentary and animation) and project development. The new
law also outlines the basic legal framework for functioning of the
film market and sets clear definitions of selected industry terms
– e.g. producer, co-producer, film production, or film services.
Information of key importance for the foreign entrepreneur can
be found in Articles 22 and 23 of the Act, which deal with the
conditions of acquiring public funding for a film project4. Paragraph
1 of Article 22 states that “[... ] any entity engaged in the
cinema business, both Polish and from another
European Union Member State or the European Free
Trade Association (EFTA), i.e. parties to the
European Economic Area, irrespective of its
organizational or legal status and ownership
structure, may apply for additional financing in the
area of preparing film projects, film production,
distribution (...) and dissemination of films,
promotion of Polish film-making and dissemination
of film culture, hereinafter referred to as additional
project financing”.
Paragraph 3 of Article 22 defines the criteria for granting additional
project financing. These include artistic, cognitive and ethical values;
importance for Polish national heritage and culture; enriching
cultural diversity in Europe; expected effects of the planned project
and finally the financial terms of the project’s completion. Based on
the above criteria, each project is assessed by a group of film
experts.
3. see: Act on Cinematography of 30 June 2005; Dz.U. 2005, no. 132, item 1111.
4. see: Tax Ordinance Act of 29 August 1997 with further changes; Dziennik Ustaw (Dz.U.)
2005, no. 8, item 60.
Polish Law
Autonomous production
to
Foreign entrepreneurs interested in film production in Poland should
by all means become familiar with the Act on Cinematography in its
entirety and with related texts, two of which are of particular
importance: the Decree of the Minister of Culture dated
27 October 2005 on the co-financing of
cinematography undertakings by the Polish Film
Institute5 and the Decree of the Minister of Culture
dated 24 November 2005 on the means of audit of
entities with reference to the use of additional
project funding6.
There are no legal impediments for foreign entrepreneurs in terms
of autonomous economic activity in Poland, including the field of
film production, even for a single project. A producer from an EU
state will naturally come across a number of formal facilitations.
However, when planning to establish cooperation with a Polish
co-producer contributing financially or bringing the promising option
of acquiring non-returnable public funds, patience becomes a key
factor because (similarly to other countries) public institutions
require an extended period of time to assess additional project
funding applications, in terms of both content (script value
assessment) and finances.
The Polish Film Institute processes additional project funding
applications within the framework of the relevant operational
programme four times per year. On average, the assessment
procedure lasts about three months, however the entire period
between application approval and signing of the contract may
exceed six months.
While awaiting the decision regarding a particular application, the
foreign producer is not required to remain in Poland, but only to
appear at necessary meetings.
5. see: Decree of the Minister of Culture dated 27 October 2005 on the co-financing of cinematography undertakings by the Polish Institute, Dz.U. 2005, no. 219, item 1870; with later
amendments: Dz.U. 2006, no. 50, item 366 and Dz.U. 2006, no. 78, item 545.
When undertaking autonomous production (i.e. without
a Polish counterpart) a foreign producer must first register
economic activity based on the same regulations that apply to
Polish businesses. However, additional provisions must be made
regarding tax issues. The foreign entrepreneur must set up a Polish
office; hire qualified legal representatives and an accounting bureau.
This does not imply release of the foreign entrepreneur from
responsibility for legal and financial decisions. According to Polish
fiscal regulations (the Tax Ordinance Act and income tax laws), as
a business entity the foreign entrepreneur is responsible for any
transgressions.
Cooperation with a Polish partner
Poland
Article 23 discusses the forms of additional project funding
(subsidies, loans or warranties) and maximum percentage of
funding in relation to the overall budget (general rule: up
50% of the total budget).
Film production in Poland is much simpler and more
convenient when cooperating with a Polish business partner. This
cooperation can take two forms – either a service order or
co-production, for applicable projects and on the condition that the
foreign producer does not lay claim to exclusive distribution rights.
A Polish partner can be helpful in obtaining funding from various
public and private sources. Aside from essential business confidence strengthened by a written contract and ease of communication, the Polish partner should be capable of fast budgeting,
preparing the shooting schedule and index of production resources,
presenting organizational options for the pre-production, principal
photography and post-production stages, but should also be
familiar with the film service and technology market and respective
financial alternatives (e.g. stock vs. magnetic film). The Polish
business partner should have a stable economic situation, head
office and qualified staff.
The most common form of operating in the film industry is a
limited company (Polish abbreviation: sp. z o.o.). Every business
must submit an annual balance sheet and filing information to the
National Court Registry regarding any changes of address, board
members or power of attorneys. This documentation may be made
available to third parties, especially for purposes of assessing the
company’s credibility.
6. see: Decree of the Minister of Culture dated 24 November 2005 on the mode and method of
audit with reference to the use of additional project funding, Dz.U. 2005, no. 242, item 2044.
103
Polish Law
Fees and Taxes
Certain fees are levied upon a foreign producer undertaking
film production in Poland, regardless of the form of cooperation
with Polish business partners. The most important of these are as
follows:
C advance on employee income tax (initial charges made upon
payment of wages);
C VAT on invoices from goods and service providers;
form is a fixed term lease agreement with clearly stated conditions
of use. It is important to take into considering even the smallest
details, down to the use of local power sources or toilet facilities.
Unless specified in a fixed price list, rent is negotiable. The property
manager also has the right to refuse permission.
Some official procedures may be complicated and time-consuming.
One of these is obtaining permission for filming in the streets.
When applying, the producer must include a project for traffic
reorganization and demarcation of the area. However the local
authorities reserve the right to refuse permission.
C social insurance on employment contracts and mandate contracts7;
C advance on business income tax (if any)
Other occasional fees and taxes include legal fees (e.g. when
signing certain lease contracts; notary charges; court registry fees),
bank fees (bank transfers, loan servicing etc.), real estate taxes
(when applicable), local costs (e.g. permits for aerial photography
or entry to national parks), and others.
Work Permits
No permit for work in Poland is required of EU and EEA
citizens, as well as senior executive management. Certain
occupations – including musicians and actors (up to 30 days) are
allowed to work in Poland without any additional permits. Unless
otherwise stated in international agreements, production crew
members from countries other than mentioned above need to
obtain a work permit from the local voivode (Wojewoda)
authorities.
Filming Permits
It is no longer prohibited to photograph military installations in
Poland. Therefore it is possible to film in any location, with
permission from the property manager. This must often be sought
long in advance, as certain procedures need to be closed 30 days
prior to the requested shooting period. The most common legal
7. Exemptions on social insurance are very limited and include students aged under 26, persons
employed elsewhere paying full insurance, and certain categories of pensioners, as well as all
specified work contracts which are the most common form of employment in the film industry.
104
When planning to shoot in decrepit buildings or in ruins, it is
necessary to obtain an expert safety report for persons accessing
the area. A positive report is essential for obtaining permit to film in
such locations.
Health Insurance
All EU and EEA citizens are covered by health insurance in
Poland. For short-term visitors carrying their European Health
Insurance Card, emergency health care is available as specified by
health insurance regulations of their country of origin.
Film Production Insurance
Completion bonds are generally uncommon in Poland. During
production, the film crew and equipment must be covered by third
party and accident insurance, for which most insurance companies
in Poland offer a wide range of services.

Film Industry
The year 2005 saw the introduction of the Act on
Cinematography in Poland and the launch of the Polish Film
Institute. The new film law determines the extent of State
involvement in film production and other areas of the industry.
This resulted in a rapid increase in the number of films being
produced in 2006 and in inducing the interest of foreign
filmmakers in co-productions and film services in Poland. The Polish
Film Institute actively promotes Polish cinema on the international
level. A foreign film producer, festival manager or international
project coordinator looking for Polish partners should turn to the
Polish Film Institute for financial consulting and assistance in
contacting interested parties.
Funding
The Polish Film Institute has an annual budget of over 25
million EUR, partially funded by a 1.5% levy imposed on TV,
cinema and cable operators. The Polish Film Institute awards
grants not only for film production, but also other fields of
the industry, including film promotion, dissemination of film
culture, professional training and film distribution. In 2007
the Polish Film Institute will grant over 15 million EUR for film
production alone. In most cases, the Polish Film Institute
grants funding up to 50% of the total production budget.
Poland participates in the two foremost European programmes for
supporting the audiovisual industry – Eurimages and the European
Union’s MEDIA 2007 programme. Warsaw is home to Media Desk
Poland, which assists producers in completing forms and settling
the accounts for projects supported by MEDIA.
One of the key investors in film is Polish Television (Telewizja
Polska SA). It is to date the largest film producer in Poland.
However, commercial TV channels, including Canal+, TVN and
occasionally Polsat and HBO Polska also participate in film
production.
A foreign producer seeking Polish production partners has a wide
range of possibilities. There are a number of businesses
specializing in film production services. Most of them focus on
a particular field – be it feature, documentary or animation
production. Although the majority of players in the film industry
consists of private businesses, among them most production,
distribution and exhibition companies, there is also a number of
State-owned film establishments, a unique element of the
structure of the Polish film industry. These regional organizations,
currently undergoing ownership transformation, include some of
Poland’s largest film studios, small-scale animation studios and film
production units1. However the ownership structure is not at all
a key factor, as all Polish private and public entities are eligible for
public funding.
Production
Poland
Polish Cinema Today
The Polish market of film-related services is well-developed and
many producers choose to make use of existing facilities, which
saves them the cost of investing in developing their own production
base. There are numerous companies that specialize in services for
various stages of production, from casting, lighting equipment and
special effects to editing, sound production and finally subtitling.
Only a few major studios have complex facilities, offering everything
from soundstages to editing services.
Distribution
The film distribution and exhibition market is slightly more
concentrated, with approximately a dozen key players. Most film
distribution companies have a complex approach to their film
product, dealing with everything from cinema distribution to
television sales and the DVD market. Polish independent film
distribution companies have also recently been increasing their
involvement in film production, contributing to the film budget and
subsequently acquiring picture rights. This form of co-production
has proven very effective and will undoubtedly continue to gain in
importance.
1. In Polish terminology film production companies are often referred to as Studios (Polish: Studio
filmowe), whereas film studios are commonly known under the term Wytwórnia.
107
Film Industry
The Polish distribution market itself is dominated by Hollywood
studios and their affiliates – UIP, Forum Film (Buena Vista
International), CinePix (20th Century Fox) and Warner Bros. Apart
from these major players, there are a few local companies that play
a key role in the market. Two of them deserve special mention, one
being Interfilm – an independent distribution company that reached
blockbuster success with Jan Pawe∏ II / Pope John Paul II (2006)
and a number of local romantic comedies. The second company is
Gutek Film, credited with familiarizing Polish audiences with the
works of some of the world’s most prominent filmmakers, including
Lars von Trier and Pedro Almodovar.
Exhibition
The number of cinemas in Poland today is approx. 700, of
which 46 are multiplex cinemas and another 4 are IMAX. In recent
years the number of multiplex cinemas has been increasing
steadily. Unfortunately this brought on the inevitable drop in the
number of single-screen cinemas, although funding from the Polish
Film Institute can help improve their situation in the future.
Film Schools
Education for film professionals is one of the fastest growing
segments of the film industry in Poland. Apart from the two leading
schools: the renowned National Film Television & Theatre School
(PWSFTiT) in ¸ódê and the Radio and Television Department of
the Silesian University (Uniwersytet Âlàski) in Katowice, and several
prestigious acting schools, young filmmakers can also study
film-related fields at most art schools and universities.
Copyright Law
The key industry collective rights organization in Poland is the
Association of Polish Filmmakers, actively cooperating with
respective parties abroad and representing film directors,
cinematographers, set designers and writers. Another authors’
association is ZAiKS, representing mostly writers and composers.
Copyright management organizations are increasingly effective in
securing royalties; however internet piracy remains a major
problem.
Film Events
Thanks to participation in the EUROPA CINEMAS framework, some
cinemas in major cities are able to focus on arthouse films, while
the mainstream multiplex venues focus on first run pictures.
Exhibition of arthouse films is also being developed through the
Arthouse Cinema Network (Sieç Kin Studyjnych), financed by the
Polish Film Institute and run by the National Film Archive.
Good admission and box-office results in recent years have led to
an investment boom in the cinema market. In Wroc∏aw alone
(population: 633,000), three new multiplex cinemas will have been
opened by the end of 2007, for a total of five. Bia∏ystok and
Lublin, the only cities over 200,000 inhabitants without a multiplex
cinema to date, will soon have two each. Two large cinemas will
also be constructed in the 100,000 inhabitant city of S∏upsk.
National Film Archive
The Polish National Film Archive (Filmoteka Narodowa) is
located in Warsaw. It is in fact the largest film archive in Poland,
collecting and preserving film prints, and running a large library of
cinematic literature and press.
108
There is a growing number of film festivals, educational
programmes and other activities aimed at developing film culture in
Poland. The largest international film festivals in Poland are the
Warsaw Film Festival, Era New Horizons in Wroc∏aw and the
documentary Cracow Film Festival. The national Polish Film Festival
takes place annually in Gdynia and is a week-long presentation of
recent film production in Poland. Apart from the major events, there
is certainly more happening on the smaller, regional scale. Most
major cities make efforts to be actively involved in film events,
which could be useful for foreign festival coordinators seeking
cooperation with Polish partners that could help obtain EU funding
for their projects.
Guilds and Unions
The key professional organization in Poland is the Association
of Polish Filmmakers (SFP) and the National Chamber of
Audiovisual Producers (KIPA); however there is also a considerable
number of actor guilds and trade unions for film professionals.
For an index of the film industry in Poland see the business directory section of this chapter.
Film Industry
The years 2000 to 2004 saw a significant decrease in the
number of feature film productions in Poland. Although the official
number was over 20, these were mostly low-budget indie
productions or TV movies. The low number of feature productions
was the result of a shortage of public funding. The new film law
and the launch of the Polish Film Institute led to reversing this
trend and marked an increase in film production over the last two
years.
By 2006, feature film production in Poland increased to almost 40
films per year. These are mostly medium-budget productions of
approximately 800,000 EUR. A low-budget feature debut usually
costs approx. 300,000 EUR. The biggest budgets in recent years
went to high-profile epic productions based on classic novels.
These include Quo Vadis (21 million EUR), Ogniem i mieczem /
With Fire and Sword (6 million EUR), PrzedwioÊnie / The Spring to
Come (5.8 million EUR) and Pan Tadeusz (3.4 million EUR). These
pictures were largely film versions of national epics, and as such
were virtually guaranteed to be a box office success. The films
made today are modestly budgeted, set in the present day and
dealing with modern issues and universal values. Komornik / The
Collector by Feliks Falk, Plac Zbawiciela / Saviour’s Square by
Krzysztof Krauze and Joanna Kos-Krauze or Dzieƒ Êwira / Day of
the Wacko by Marek Koterski are examples of medium-budget films
set in Poland today that have gained critical acclaim and won best
picture awards at the Polish Film Festival in Gdynia, and at the
same time were successful at the box office.
With a budget of approximately 4.2 million EUR, the largest project
currently in production in Poland is the historical feature Katyƒ from
the acclaimed Polish director and Academy Award winner Andrzej
Wajda.
Migas, Warszawa by Dariusz Gajewski, Symetria / Symmetry by
Konrad Niewolski, Edi by Piotr Trzaskalski and most recently
Z odzysku / Retrieval, Poland’s 2006 Oscar entry from S∏awomir
Fabicki are all superb examples of such films.
When looking at mainstream production, it is impossible to overlook
the key role played by romantic comedies, which often reach
blockbuster success at the box office and later on the DVD market.
Recent hits include Dlaczego nie / Why not!; Nigdy w ˝yciu! / Never
ever!; Tylko mnie kochaj / Just Love Me; Ja wam poka˝´! / I’ll Show
You! and Francuski numer / French Number.
Poland
Film Production In Poland 2005-2006.
An Overview
The introduction of the new film law and the international activity of
the Polish Film Institute helped to increase interest of foreign
filmmakers in Poland as a potential partner for coproduction. In
2005 alone six films were coproductions, a further eight in 2006,
and currently eleven more are in production. Poland has
participated in the production of Strike by Volker Schlöndorff,
Nightwatching by Peter Greenaway, John Kent Harrison’s Pope John
Paul II and most recently in the newest features from Ken Loach
(These Times).
Cinema Attendance in Poland 2005-2006
Current trends in the Polish cinema market are similar to
those in other European countries. The biggest box office and
attendance success goes to Hollywood blockbusters that
reach similar status worldwide. However, much like in other
countries of Central Europe (Hungary, Czech Republic) the past
year marked a significant rise in admissions to local films. In Poland
these were mainly medium-budget romantic comedies. One thing
unique in Poland is the incredible popularity of film biographies of
Pope John Paul II (three Top10 box office hits of 2005-2006) and
of films considered historically significant.
2005
The recent years have also marked the success of many
up-and-coming filmmakers. It is these young people that are
changing the face of Polish cinema today. Debut features have
often become popular with cinema audiences, but also gained
critical acclaim, winning awards at Polish and international festivals.
Pr´gi / The Welts from Magdalena Piekorz, Oda do radoÊci / Ode
to Joy from the trio of Anna Kazejak-Dawid, Jan Komasa and Maciej
In 2005 cinema attendance slipped by nearly 30 percent in relation
to the record-breaking year 2004 – partly as a result of worldwide
decline in admissions. A record 224 titles were introduced to Polish
screens, which unfortunately found no reflection in admissions or
box office sales. Total attendance in 2005 was 23.3 million, worth
87 million EUR in box-office receipts. With Poland joining the
European Union, the distribution of European films was supported
109
Film Industry
through the MEDIA programme and as a result the number of
European films in distribution in Poland rose to 72 titles, holding
a record 23 percent share in the market. As for Polish films, 24
premiered in 2005, but none reached great commercial success.
This was to change by 2006.
2006 brought an overall 30 percent increase in cinema
attendance. Nine Polish features had over 200,000
admissions – a significant improvement from 2005, when not
a single Polish film had reached this mark. This was one of
many positive results of the launching of the Polish Film
Institute.
Polish audiences continued to enjoy made-for-television movies on
the big screen. These motion pictures were uniquely Polish cinema
successes, as each was based on the life of John Paul II and as
such, while aired on TV in other countries, each had a special
cinema version made for the Polish public.
The number of titles increased slightly to a total of 236.
Eight titles had more than one million cinema admissions
(as opposed to only three in 2005).
The Top 20 list contained nine family pics and three Polish
features (including two in the Top 10), with another four
following suit just below the Top 20 mark. The share of
Polish films in total screenings is currently over 16% (not
including the co-production Pope John Paul II), as compared
to 3.4% in 2005.
P. Bujnowicz Fabryka Obrazu
With almost 1.9 million admissions, the box-office hit of the
year was the TV movie Karol: A Man Who Became Pope.
Eight of the Top 10 movies of 2005 were produced in the
United States. Among them five were family entertainment,
with Madagascar leading the list at nearly 1.4 million admissions, slightly ahead of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
The three titles mentioned above were the only films to
exceed one million admissions. Slightly below this mark was
the recent Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith
(927,000 admissions). Two Disney productions made it into
the Top 10 – Chicken Little and Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, with
768,000 admissions and 575,000 admissions respetively.

New Film Law
Poland
On 30 June 2005, the Polish parliament passed the Act on
Cinematography, thus setting the new film law in Poland. Two
months later the Polish Film Institute was established.
As an instrument of State policy regarding the film industry, the
Polish Film Institute focuses primarily on financial support to all
areas related directly to film.
Sources of Financing for the Polish Film Institute
The prime source of financing film production in Poland introduced by the new film law is a 1.5% levy on revenue from cinemas,
VHS and DVD sales, television advertising, and cable/satellite television platforms. Additional sources include lottery funding and government subsidies. The total annual budget of the Polish Film
Institute is approximately 100 million PLN (25 million EUR).
