Tomorrow, in the streets of Bielsko-Biała, shooting for a new feature film called “Believe in Mikołaja”, the screenplay for which was written by Ilona Łepkowska based on the best-selling book by Magdalena Witkiewicz under the same title. In the film, we will see a multigenerational galaxy of Polish actors. Shooting for production will also be carried out in Goczałkowice-Zdrój, near Milówka and in Warsaw.

“I am so excited that the heroes I created will appear on the screen. Believe in Santa is my first book to be filmed, so everything is completely new to me! I am very happy that I can watch the whole process from the beginning, that Mrs. Ilona Łepkowska, when she noticed that I was not interfering too much, allowed me to watch this fascinating spectacle, which is working on a film. I didn’t realize there was so much to do with it. I watched castings and it was really amazing seeing actors speak with words that I once wrote and play roles that I made up for them. And such actors! Simply put, dreams do come true and I am happy like a little girl waiting for the first Christmas! – says Magdalena Witkiewicz, the author of the book.

The filmmakers return to Bielsko-Biała. Timetable on the film set in Bielsko Old Town

– Unlike the book, I decided to place the film in the mountains, as they seemed to be the best background for a Christmas story. And also for such a prosaic reason that it is easier to get snow there. While looking for a picturesque mountain town, we found ourselves in Bielsko-Biała. The market square, the atmosphere of the city and the surrounding landscape immediately amazed us – explains Ilona Łepkowska, screenwriter and producer of the film.

The cinema premiere of “Uwierz w Mikołaja” is planned for October 21, 2022.
