It has never been easier to find us on the Web!


Over the past month we have been as busy as twitterbugs building our visibility on the web and will continue to try to improve each of our social media outlets (Notice the yummy icons up in the top right hand corner!) as well as seeking out new places to join the film community in exposing our company, its films and our Director Mariusz Kotowski! Everyday, new groups are being formed, and we want to make new connections!  

So, don't be shy about joining, liking, friending, linking, subscribing or commenting on any of our web media outlets.


Here is a summary of where you can get busy and connect with us starting with our website where you can find links to all of our films for purchase as well as Mariusz's new book about Pola Negri.


Let's get clicking!

Celebrity Corner


Margaret O'Brien and Mariusz KotowskiEvery month we would like to feature a special event, award or celebrity that Mariusz has had the honor of attending, receiving or meeting. Pictured this month is Mariusz Kotowski (Director/Producer) with Academy Award Winner Margaret O'Brien ("Tootie" in Vincente Minnelli's Meet Me in St. Louis - 1944)

The photo was taken at The Southern California Motion Picture Council in 2009 when Mariusz was presented "The Golden Halo Award" for his documentary Pola Negri: Life is a Dream in Cinema.


Inspiration Retreat


Mariusz and Director of development, Marti Swanson are heading to LA at the end of the month for the Robert McKee workshop to get the creative juices flowing as they work on polishing several scripts in development as well as working on some stories not yet written! They'll be networking and lunching with some prominent people in the distribution community as well as Producers and colleagues.  Call us if you want to set up a meeting!
