Mañana Ltd was incorporated in January 2010 as the production arm of a Polish film distribution and promotion company AP Mañana. The close cooperation of the two entities allows for synergies in a number of fields.
Mañana’s mission is to develop outstanding fiction and documentary cinematic films in co-production with foreign partners. LASTING (Poland-Spain) directed by Jacek Borcuch was presented at CineMart 2011 and had its world premiere in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the 2013 SUNDANCE Film Festival, winning the CINEMATOGRAPHY AWARD. UNITED STATES OF LOVE (Poland-Sweden) by Tomasz Wasilewski presented at the 2014 Rotterdam-Berlinale Express, supported by the CREATIVE EUROPE programme and developed at the 2014 EAVE Producers Workshop, won a SILVER BEAR for best screenplay at the 2016 BERLINALE. SATAN SAID DANCE (Poland-Netherlands) by Kasia Rosłaniec, written on the Nipkow scholarship in Berlin and supported by the MEDIA programme, had its North American premiere at the 2017 SXSW and won awards in Kraków, Valencia, and Hamburg. Mañana currently has two films in post-production: a feature documentary WALK WITH ANGELS by Tomasz Wysokiński, and SALT LAKE, a new film by Kasia Rosłaniec, selected for the BERLINALE CO-PRODUCTION MARKET and shot in the summer of 2020. A new feature by Piotr Dumała titled FIN DEL MUNDO? is in pre-production.
Since its founding by Piotr Kobus in 2001, AP Mañana has been the Polish distributor of films by eminent world cinema authors, including Semih Kaplanoğlu, Claudia Llosa, Ashgar Farhadi, Brillante Mendoza, Lisandro Alonso, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Álex de la Iglesia, Jia Zhang-ke and Jasmila Žbanić. AP Mañana acts as the international sales agent of LASTING and SATAN SAID DANCE, and as the Polish distributor of UNITED STATES OF LOVE. Together with the Embassy of Spain in Poland and the Cervantes Institute, the company organizes the Spanish Cinema Week – the biggest presentation of Spanish cinema in Poland. AP Mañana also specializes in promoting Polish cinema worldwide, which has allowed it to create an extensive network of contacts within the international film industry.
