February 14 during the 67th Berlinale Kuba Czekaj was awarded by Baumi Script Development Award for feature film script "Sorry, Poland". The award was presented in Berlin.

Baumi Award commemorates the famous producer and founder of Pandora Film Karl Baumgartner (Malgorzata Szumowska also collaborated with Baumgartner). The prize opens the door to international co-productions. "Sorry, Poland" also received financing from Polish Film Institute to develop the script.

The film's hero is a 40-year-old disillusioned dancer, and the starting point for the script was Maria Peszek’s song "Sorry, Poland". Photos are planned for 2018.
