In 1965, the film director, producer, cinematographer and innovator, Dedo Weigert founded the Dedo Weigert Film GmbH, a film production company and film equipment rental business.

He is the winner of twenty five international awards for his contribution to film and technical development, amongst them: 1990 Technical Achievement Award, 2002 Cinec Award and 2003 Scientific and Engineering Award. For our cinematography students, meeting Dedo Weigert is not only meeting a living legend, but also an encounter with the future of cinematographic technology. Dedo Weigert is constantly working on new inventions.

During the workshop, the Heliograf Award granted to a 3rd year student for the highest marks and the most interesting film was presented to Aliaksandr Tsymbaliuk, the author of the film, “Sasha”, who was selected by professors Ryszard Lenczewski and Wojciech Staroń.
