Words and pictures are both able to stir powerful emotions and encourage us to think. Word2Picture, held for the first time in 2019 as part of the Conrad Festival, brings together the publishing and cinema industries.
The aim of the event is to showcase the latest literature with a potential to be adapted and to create a platform for collaboration between publishers and film and TV producers. The event includes a cycle of closed teaching sessions and workshops for industry representatives and meetings and discussions for readers and cinemagoers. The event is organised by the KBF, operator of the Kraków UNESCO City of Literature programme and the Kraków Film Commission.
