Ten full-length films will be presented in the Polish Film Panorama section at the 44th Polish Film Festival in Gdynia. Among others NIC NIE GINIE / NOTHING IS LOST directed by Kalina Alabrudzinska.

The out-of-competition Polish Film Panorama section includes films chosen by the Organizing Committee from among those submitted but not qualified for the Main Competition. The program of the Festival includes film screenings as well as meetings with artists.

The graduation film of Lodz Film School acting students NIC NIE GINIE / NOTHING IS LOST by Kalina Alabrudzińska had its first public special screening at the opening of the 37th Drama Schools’ Festival in Lodz, then had its premiere at the 38th YOUTH & FILM Debut Films’ Festival in Koszalin. Now it's time for Gdynia Film Festival which
will take place from 16 to 21 September.

The film NIC NIE GINIE / NOTHING IS LOST is the recent graduation film of our acting students and it continues the tradition of the Lodz Film School where apart from the graduation play, each year the students of the final year of acting make a full-length graduation film. The first graduation film was "Singing Napkin" by Mariusz Grzegorzek, followed by: "Crystal Girl" by Artur Urbański, "Soyer" by Łukasz Barczyk and "Monument" by Jagoda Szelc.

NIC NIE GINIE / NOTHING IS LOST is also a full-length, original film debut of Kalina Alabrudzińska.

Kalina on her film:
The film protagonists suffer from my favourite illness - sadness. Life requires changes from them but they do not want to yield to this. They prefer to hide in the thicket of leaves and everyday life. And the world around is beautiful, the sun is shining, so why should not they be reborn as a better and happier species? I hope that my sad film will make you laugh and, like my heroes, you will feel part of a strong and important community - a community of lonely people.
