Best Script Selected
Adam Bauman’s script for the film Triple Mission won the top prize in the Polish part of the Hartley-Merrill International Screenwriting Contest. The film is based on the life of Saint Andrzej Bobola, a Polish Jesuit who died a martyr’s death in 1657.

The Hartley-Merrill Screenwriting Contest is one of the world’s most prestigious contests for scriptwriters. The main organizer of the Polish part of the competition is the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing in Warsaw. The scripts singled out for praise in the contest stand a good chance of making it to the silver screen.


Poland on CNN
A new campaign designed to promote Poland will start on the CNN International television network in June, aiming to highlight tourism opportunities here and vaunt the strengths of the country’s economy.

The campaign will last until the end of the year with a break for the summer vacations. It will include commercials and programs about Poland showing it as a dynamic, modern country attractive to tourists and a reliable business partner as well as a desirable investment destination.

The campaign is being mounted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency (PAIiIZ), the Polish Tourist Organization (POT), and LOT Polish Airlines.


TVN Lingua to Shut Down
Commercial television broadcaster TVN will shut down its language-learning channel TVN Lingua July 15, the company has said.

This is because the channel has not achieved a satisfactory profitability level despite being on the market for two years, the company said.


Good Year for Canal+ Cyfrowy
The Canal+ Cyfrowy company, which owns the Cyfra+ digital satellite TV platform and specialty channels such as Canal+ and MiniMini, reported over zl.1 billion in sales revenue last year, 11.7 percent more than in 2007.

The company plans to broadcast at least one free-to-air channel on digital terrestrial TV and it may also apply to operate a digital TV multiplex.


Ad Market Expected to Slow
Due to an economic slowdown, Poland’s advertising market will grow no more than 3 percent this year, down from around 12 percent last year, according to Tomasz Che³mecki, general manager of Starlink Media House.

According to Che³mecki, spending on online advertisements will grow by 15-18 percent in 2009, down from around 30 percent last year. Spending on television commercials is expected to increase less than 10 percent, while spending on ads in daily newspapers is likely to decline, Che³mecki said.
