Write a screenplay, win the competition, and let the world see you! The owner of the Warsaw Financial Center makes a lobby wall available for films of talented Lodz Film School students!

The films to be screened on the wall will be selected in a competition of student films made in the Lodz Film School, the main project partner. The aim of the cooperation is to promote young promising representatives of the Polish film art. In the first stage of the competition a jury from the firms Tristan Capital Partners and Colliers International and the Lodz Film School will choose three best screenplays. Then, the winners will receive funds to make films based on their screenplays.

It will be possible to see the films at the Warsaw Financial Center already this autumn. The screening wall consisting of twenty four 55 inch screens filling in total the surface of 4,84 m x 4,14 m has been the central point of the lobby since it was renovated in the second half of 2014. It is the only public construction of this kind in Poland.

- Every day over 3,000 people pass through the Warsaw Financial Center lobby, which is more than an average daily audience in an average Warsaw cinema. In this way the screening wall constitutes the greatest promotion tool for the work of the young and talented artists. We are happy we can promote them and at the same time provide artistic impressions and relaxation for the employees working in the building – says Artur Lis, Asset Manager Portfolio & Asset Management from the Tristan Capital Partners.

- This competition is a great opportunity for our students to come up with film projects and present them to businessmen from the Warsaw Financial Center. I am convinced that thank to the competition new, interesting, diverse and artistic student films will be made. – says Krzysztof Brzezowski, head PR and International Relations from the Lodz Film School.

The Lodz Film School is one of the oldest film schools in the world. It educates film directors, cinematographers, animators, photographers, screenwriters, editors, production managers and actors. Among its graduates there are such outstanding film-makers as: Roman Polański, Adam Holender, Witold Sobociński, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Ryszard Lenczewski, Zbigniew Rybczyński and Małgorzata Szumowska, the authors of remarkable films and the winners of prestigious festival awards.

Since the end of 2012 it has been owned by Allianz Real Estate and Curzon Capital Partners III Consortium, the invest funds governed by Tristan Capital Partners.
