We have decided to team up with with leading Polish producers producers Ewa Puszczyńska (Ida, Cold War) and Klaudia Śmieja (High Life, Gareth Jones, The Innocents, Under the Tree) to set up a new production outlet called NEM Corp. The new company’s aim will be attracting prestigious international film projects to Poland, both as co-production and service work, as well as developing new projects with the most interesting Polish talents.
Ewa Puszczyńska is an Oscar and European Film Award winner for Ida and Cannes award-winner for Cold War (Cannes and TIFF 2018), both by Paweł Pawlikowski. She also coproduced Robert Schwentke’s latest film The Captain the Berlinale-selected Hostages and works as an expert for the Torino Film Lab, among others. Klaudia Śmieja is the producer of Agnieszka Holland’s upcoming $8,5mln historical drama Gareth Jones and Claire Denis’ High Life (TIFF 2018). She also coproduced some of the most successful Polish minority co-productions in recent years – Anne Fontaine’s The Innocents, Haffstein Gunnar Sigurdsson’s Under the Tree and Babis Makridis’ Pity.
