They have been selected and often won prizes at the most prestigious festivals, including Berlinale, San Sebastian, Karlovy Vary, Hot Docs, IDFA and DOK Leipzig. In 2011, continuing the mission of the School, Andrzej Wajda and Wojciech Marczewski established a film production studio - Wajda Studio www.wajdastudio.pl, which aims to support projects with strong artistic vision.
