Blue Dream Film is owned and run by Czarek Grzesiuk. Czarek has drawn on his extensive filmmaking experience to create his own studio. Blue Dream Film have two major focusses:
- Production. We produce films commissioned by clients and also develop our own screenplays in collaboration with the Polish Film Institute and other co-producers.
- On-set editing. An innovative, creative approach to film chiefly based on the active presence of the film editor at all the stages of a film’s production.
