The spectacular successes of the Polish film industry are rooted in a number of political and legal changes in Polish cinematography after the fall of Communism. The establishment of the Polish Film Institute, following the passing of the Cinematography Act and regulations on radio and TV broadcasting, contributed to the recovery of the film industry in Poland. Appreciated by local viewers and critics alike, Polish movies also appeal to the juries at European festivals and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Our organization, the Directors’ Guild of Poland, follows in the footsteps of the Council of Directors – a group that once functioned alongside the Polish Filmmakers Association. As a trade union of Polish directors, the Guild has a duty and vocation to continue working for positive changes in the film industry.
