We already revealed the names of the members of the Young People’s Jury when announcing the results of the competition.Today, you will have a chance to get to know them better.
We are happy to introduce our young jurors who will judge feature films:
An author of two budgetless short films, winner of the ‘Skrytykuj!’ competition and the 2nd Film and Social Communication Knowledge Contest. A finalist of the ‘Krytyk Mówi’ competition at the Kamera Akcja Festival, winner of the award for the best video review at the Bytom Film Festival. Currently studying psychology, but things may change... An enthusiast of philosophy, Samuel Beckett’s dramas, and everything that has spinach in it. In her free time, she plays chess and embroiders. An activist for women rights and the LGBT+ movement. In her statements, she balances on the verge of merit (counter) argumentation and insolence.
She is 18 years old and looking to pass her final exams. A malcontent and an unfulfilled humanist, in cinema, she wants to see emotions and in the director – a fellow human being. She would like to be able to tell stories, but she still hasn't found the right language. She is a little bit anxious about the future, but she remains active in fear of stagnation. Hopelessly addicted to collecting old stuff, which she later end up having nowhere to put. She enjoys solo train travels, but the Trans-Siberian railway is beyond her budget for now.
This year’s high school graduate and hence an ardent opponent of compulsory math as a part of the final exam. She knows she doesn’t want her professional future to be a full-time job, but she’s still unsure what she would want it to look like. A fan of Haneke and Tarantino, inconsistent in her life just as she is in her film preferences. She does not know why she chose to write about herself in the third person. During the process of choosing the field of study, it turned out that I am interested in many things that, unfortunately, cannot be studied at the same time. Shoot. I can, however, draw the main axis of my interests – film and film-related fields, like cinematography, editing, photography.
She loves showy super-productions and intelligent cinema. She does not shun away from any genre in cinema or television. A fan of Star Wars, comic books, TV series, and cats.
This year’s high school graduate. For the last 18 months, he has been cooperating with the Muza cinema as part of the Young Ambassadors programme. He prefers the great filmmakers of the European cinema to the American film industry, highly valuing the works of Tarkowski, Bergman, Tarr, Fellini, and Angelopoulos. He is also interested in literature, music, and history.
The second composition of the Young People’s Jury will be responsible for evaluating short films screened at the Festival. Among the fans of short forms, please welcome:
She has always been sensitive to art – in high school, she fell in love with the tenth Muse. Barbara is particularly interested in short forms – mainly animation, video clips, and short films. Currently, she studies at the Poznań University of Technology where she tries to hide among the scientific minds and cultivate her passion, which is creating her own etudes.
I am studying at the St. Mary Magdalene High School, in a humanistic education class. My main interest lies in cinema, but I’m also keen on music, history, and the culture of other countries. I have been watching films and TV series since my early childhood, raised on old American westerns and war movies, hence my fascination with American cinema. My favourite director is Clint Eastwood, but I also value Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, Martin Scorsese, and Ridley Scott.
She is a 19-year-old graduate of the 1st degree music school and a military high school. This year, she has started studying Finnish studies at the University of Warsaw. Her greatest passions – music, literature, film, foreign languages, and her Polish mother tongue – combined with her interest in the world and a thirst for knowledge, play an important role in the process of shaping her life independently. In making decisions, Ingeborga tries to balance reason and emotions. In every field, she values diversity and the creator’s commitment to their work to the viewers and reducing the distance between the art and the audience.
