Discover our story
Warsaw Film School was founded in 2004 by Polish film director, producer and screenwriter Maciej Ślesicki and one of the country’s most popular actors, Bogusław Linda.
Warsaw Film School had been active on the market for over eighteen years and is currently one of the fastest growing film academies in Europe.
This allows us to employ a highly qualified, professionally active teaching staff of Polish and international filmmakers and film scholars. We are constantly improving our infrastructure and investing in our campus, the home to School’s production.
The School organizes a range of educational, artistic, and professional events, including Script Fiesta – Europe’s only fully open festival dedicated to the art of writing for the screen.
Each year hundreds of professionals gather for a week of master-classes, workshops, pitching sessions and social events. The list of special guests includes Joe Eszterhas, Pilar Alessandra, Linda Aronson, Slawomir Idziak, Elite Zexer and Jane Campion.
