NEXT FILM’s production choices are recognised not only by the audience, as shown by box office rankings, but also by the critics. Films distributed by our company were repeatedly awarded Golden and Silver Lions during the Gdynia Film Festival. They were also awarded numerous Eagles (Polish Film Awards). Other awards include the European Film Award and Golden Globe and Oscar nominations (for “Twój Vincent [Loving Vincent]”, dir. by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman).
In May 2017, NEXT FILM extended its activity to film production. The first film produced by NEXT FILM was “Plan B”, directed by Kinga Dębska. In 2022, the company produced “Johnny” directed by Daniel Jaroszek. The story of an extraordinary friendship starring Dawid Ogrodnik and Piotr Trojan became the second highest-grossing Polish film of the year. The NEXT FILM portfolio also includes productions commissioned by external companies, dedicated for streaming platforms. The first film of this kind was the comedy “Delivery by Christmas” produced for Netflix.
