Distribution Of Polish Film Abroad

In 2019 The Polish Film Institute has introduced a new priority of supporting foreign distribution of Polish films. The aim of the task is to increase the availability of Polish films abroad, increase the audience on Polish films and increase the visibility of Polish artists on international markets.

As part of the priority, the cinema distribution of the Polish full-length film (feature, documentary, animated) on a territory other than Poland can be co-financed. Distribution costs in other fields than cinema are eligible, provided that distribution in cinemas is assured.

Priority will be given to the distribution of films with PISF funding and which, without PISF support, have limited distribution opportunities in a given country.

Within the priority, one can receive

  • up to PLN 40000.00 (about EUR 9,000) for distribution costs on one territory
  • up to PLN 120000.00 (about EUR 27.000) for distribution costs for one film distributed in three or more territories
  • co-financing max. 50% of distribution costs

Four sessions a year:

  • 02/25/2019
  • 05/27/2019
  • 02/09/2019
  • 11/12/2019

Requirements:

  • The distributor's own contribution cannot be less than 50% of the distribution budget.
  • Distribution must include at least 5 cinemas for feature and animated films and at least 3 cinemas for documentary films.
  • The applicant is required to present a contract confirming distribution rights in a given territory.
  • The application must be accompanied by a contract with a distributor containing in particular: the project's budget, detailed cost estimate, schedule, fields of use, minimum and maximum P&A costs, number of screens for film distribution.
  • The application must be submitted at least 6 weeks before the film's distribution date.

The decision on financing the application is made by the Director of the Institute after consulting the Experts within 90 days from the date of submitting the application. 

Beneficiaries:

Polish film producers being the leading producer of the film.

Eligible costs:

  • Costs of promotion and advertising abroad
  • Costs of dubbing
  • Translation costs for the dialogue list
  • Transport services costs
  • Costs of film distribution audit abroad

The costs of the Minimum Guaranteed and M & E track cannot be covered by PISF funding.

The mode and terms of payment of subsidies:

The subsidy is paid in two installments:

  1. I installment amounting to 70% after positive verification of the financial plan of the project and signing the contract for co-financing;
  2. II installment in the amount of 30% after submission by the applicant of the final report from the entire project budget, audit of distributor's expenses and distribution of film in the form of press releases and acceptance of the above-mentioned documents by the PISF.
