New Europe Film Sales Expands to Documentaries

Warsaw-based company signs new film from Oscar nominees

Warsaw-based New Europe Film Sales has launched a documentary arm topped by Polish doc producer Anna Wydra.

The first pic on its slate is “The Art of Disappearing,” from Bartek Konopka and Piotr Rosołowski (Oscar-nommed doc short “Rabbit a la Berlin”).

The film, produced by the Adam Mickiewicz’s Institute and Wydra’s Otter Films will feature in the video library of the Cannes Market’s Doc Corner.

“We like building relationships with talented filmmakers and producers and Anna, Bartek and Piotr are great examples of passionate and inspiring professionals that we want to accompany in their careers. It will also be interesting to add documentaries to the mix in our catalog,” said Jan Naszewski, New Europe Film Sales’ CEO.

New Europe Film Sales is also handling Janis Nords’ “Mother, I Love You,” Matt Porterfield’s “I Used to Be Darker,” “Now, Forager: A Film About Love and Fungi” by Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin and Anka and Wilhelm Sasnal’s “It Looks Pretty From a Distance.”
