Lynch sets Polish studio

Studio to focus on post-production, music recording

WARSAW — Helmer David Lynch will set up a film studio in Lodz, Poland, in partnership with the Tumult Foundation, organizer of the Camerimage festival, and French company Absys, which will invest $160 million.

Construction will begin next year on the studio, which will focus on post-production and music recording.

Helmer Peter Weir plans to use the studio in a new production and is scouting locations in Central and Eastern Europe.

Roland Joffe will run two three-week film workshops, each for five students selected by Lynch, Weir and Joffe from film schools in Central and Eastern Europe. These masters’ workshops will probably be followed by courses for cinematographers.

“The final talks with David Lynch will take place in December, during the Camerimage festival,” said fest director Marek Zydowicz.

“We are also seeking financial partners to cover the other half of the studio’s building costs.”
