18 January 2013 Become a co-maker of a film about Krakow

Magdalena Piekorz encourages everyone to co-create a unique film about literary Krakow. She hopes for the ingeniousness of the people submitting their materials that could be a valuable supplement to the film narration. Apart from the materials listed below, all unique phenomena testifying to a deep presence of literature in the life of Krakow and Malopolska are welcome. Please send materials to citywrites@readingmalopolska.pl.

List of wanted archive materials:

- ul. Długa
- ul. Krupnicza and Dom Literatów
- Krakow during the times of the People’s Republic of Poland and the martial law
- Krakow under wartime occupation
- Krakow in old photographs – after the war
- literary memorabilia: pens used by writers, unique dedications, fleeting literary texts scribbled on napkins
- old photographs of the Bronowice district
- photographs of Zakopane (Willa Astoria, Dom Wczasowy Atma, Teatr Witkacego)
- photographs of other Malopolska Region localities related to literary life

The producer of the Polish episode of the City(W)rites series is the Krakow Festival Office, with TVP and the Book Institute as partners, while the shooting is supported by the Krakow Film Commission.

The project is supported by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage with funds from the Promoting Readership programme. The funds are managed by the Book Institute.

The Polish episode of the City(W)rites is being produced under the Reading Malopolska project. Reading Malopolska is a project envisaged for the years 2007–2013 and supported with the funds of the Malopolska Regional Operational Programme, under which Malopolska and its capital, Krakow, want to communicate their literary heritage and participate in the building of a network of co-operation of creative regions in the field of literature.

The project Literacka Małopolska is co-financed by the European Union as part of the The Malopolska Regional Operational Programme 2007-2013 ERDF.
