Polish Film Institute

(Polski Instytut Sztuki Filmowej, PISF)
   The Polish Film Institute was founded in August of 2005 within the Ministry of Culture and replaced the State Cinema Committee (Komitet Kinematografii) established in 1987 and the Script, Production, and Distribution Agencies created in 1991. The main goal of the institute, headed by Agnieszka Odorowicz, is to create conditions for the development of local film production and to promote Polish cinema in Poland and abroad. The institute's mission is to support local cinema at all stages of film production by subsidizing the development of film projects and assisting during the processes of production, promotion, and distribution of films. As specified in the 2005 Act on Cinematography, the institute's task is to support young filmmakers and art cinema, to increase the presence of Polish films at international film festivals, and to support the present film institutions, such as the National Film Archive.
