Andrzej Wajda School of Film Directing to open in March

WARSAW — Poland’s top helmers, led by Andrzej Wajda, are launching a film school for directors in Warsaw. The Andrzej Wajda School of Film Directing will open its doors in March and welcome students from both Poland and abroad.

The joint founder is director Wojciech Marczewski. Among the other professors are Agnieszka Holland, Krzysztof Zanussi, Edward Zebrowski and documentary director Marcel Lozinski.

“Thousands of young people are reaching for video cameras. They may lack professional skill, but many of them do not lack talent or imagination. We will try to help them share our professional experience,” Wajda said.

The one-year course will have a strong practical focus. Students will spend the year developing their screenplays with tutors as well as with professional actors.
