The film "The Land" has qualified for the Talgrass Film Festival in the United States, which will take place from October 20-24. This is the second event in America, after Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival, where the first full-length production of the Warsaw Film School will be presented.
The Tallgrass Film Festival, held annually in the city of Wichita, is the largest independent film festival in the state of Kansas. The event is a showcase of the region's film landscape and an internationally recognized platform for world-class film programs, is organized by the Tallgrass Film Association, an arts organization that fosters an appreciation of the cinematic arts.
Our film will be screened as part of the out-of-competition Spotlight Feature Films section. Although it will not be judged by a jury, it will compete for the Audience Award.
Since August 27, "The Land" can be watched in cinemas all over Poland. The director of the film is Maciej Ślesicki, the founder and chancellor of the Warsaw Film School, and the school's graduates: Veronica Andersson, Mateusz Motyka and Filip Hillesland. The creators have prepared six separate stories, interwoven with unexpected twists and filled with a large dose of black humour.
Students of the Warsaw Film School were involved in the project in all fields and stages of production. Under the supervision of experienced coordinators Maciej Ślesicki, Andrzej Wolf, Marek Brodzki and Zbigniew Niciński, together with professionals from the film industry, they created a film that is a voice that unites generations in the debate on modern Poland.
