Polish Days will be held on July 30 - August 1, 2019, during the 19th New Horizons International Film Festival (July 25 - August 4, 2019).

Polish Days, the most important industry event at the New Horizons International Film Festival, is organised jointly with the Polish Film Institute. During closed screenings, film industry representatives from around the world watch the latest Polish films at various stages of production, including completed works as well as fragments of films in postproduction; they also participate in pitching sessions of projects in development. As each year, organizers expect about 200 guests, including sales agents, distributors, film festival programmers as well as producers. Polish Days is an excellent opportunity for Polish film producers and filmmakers to promote their projects, plan festival strategies and network with international partners.
