English Summary

The Media Cluster creates conditions that are favourable to developing the media industry in Lodz by supporting the companies and entrepreneurs in their project implementations, in particular in the area of filmmaking, television, and new media, taking advantage of the local economic potential and the research resources of the Polish National School of Film, Television, and Theatre and other regional education and research and development centres.

The Media Cluster exploits more than 60-years of Lodz’s filmmaking tradition and the high human, research, cultural, and economic potential of the local media market, and fits in the Lodzkie Region’s Strategy and the Lodz Council’s scheme titled \”Lodz Cluster as a Pro-innovation Cooperation Network in the Region\”.
