YOUNG PEOPLE'S JURY / FEATURE FILMS
He’s been fascinated by cinema from the earliest age. The passion has led him to various personal discoveries and has drawn him especially close to the films of outstanding directors, Federico Fellini and Robert Bresson remaining his favourites. Currently, he indulges his passion while recording his amateur feature ‘Speedcuber’. He is addicted to working with people who have an opinion and who – like him – want to create meaningful culture, as far-reaching and challenging a task as it may be.
Odyssey of the Mind creativity contest 2019 world champion and winner of a local film competition ‘Let’s not waste this opportunity!’. At the age of nine, he came up with the idea for and organised a workshop for children, ‘Lego for everyone’. Now, instead of building blocks, he uses sounds and images as a building material for his films. He is fascinated by the phenomenon of choice in life, which he expressed in the first Polish interactive horror film.
A student of the K.K. Baczyński High School No 2 in Konin. While she dropped the “y” from her name, she holds a tenacious grip on her creative force. In her free time, she slows down and expresses herself by pouring humanity into photos, words and sounds, but most importantly: she sleeps. Preferring a cozy space and a non-munching audience, in the cinema, she’s after strong women, a mysterious aura, the complexity of the (non)human psyche, and... inspirations for this year’s final exam. A laureate of the Criticize! Competition.
YOUNG PEOPLE'S JURY / SHORT FILMS

At nights, she writes stories and film scripts. In love with strange, disturbing and puzzling stories. In art, she is fascinated by blurring the boundaries between opposing concepts: the sacred and the profane, life and death, fiction and reality. A psychological and social cinema lover with a soft spot for animation. A laureate of the Criticize! Competition.
