To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Andrzej Wajda School will present in Gdynia a selection of its best film posters. Among them we may find the posters prepared for films directed by Bartek Konopka, Marcin Sauter and Agnieszka Smoczyńska.

The role of Andrzej Wajda School is not limited to developing the projects prepared by the Programme participants. Neither is it limited to film production. The School makes every effort to promote its films in a professional manner. Despite the low budget, the Schools places particular emphasis on preparing the posters that convey as far as possible the uniqueness of feature and documentary films, at the same time reflecting the close cooperation between the graphic artist and director. In this manner, Andrzej Wajda School refers not only to the idea of Film Teams, but also tries to follow the tradition of the Polish School of Posters.
