Krakow Film Foundation is the main organiser of Krakow Film Festival existing from 1961. The Foundation was officially registered on the July 3rd, 2003 and started its activity in December 2003.
It was established in order to increase the possibilities on different fields related to film: besides the Krakow Film Festival, the Foundation also organises other film events. The main goals of the Foundation are popularisation of the film and culture, film education, promotion of high quality films both in Poland and abroad, assisting in the professional and artistic development of filmmakers and the support of the artistically ambitious film projects. We are also deeply convinced that our practice in organising one of the oldest and most renowned festivals dedicated to documentaries, shorts and animations allows us to carry out the project in the best possible way, leading to a large number of interesting agreements and transactions, especially in regard to our long-term co-operation with industry organisations, directors and producers in addition to our in-depth knowledge of the short and documentary film environment.
